About the Event :

During the COVID-19 epidemic outbreak, online learning and teaching have become a necessity during school lockdown. Such “emergency remote teaching” has brought great challenges for teachers to provide an engaging learning experience online. As we step into the post-COVID era, there is a widespread consensus that online learning and teaching will become a new norm in the field of education. It then becomes critical to equip instructors with the pedagogies and strategies of online teaching.
