  • What

The integration of digital skills into everyday teaching has been accelerated by the pandemic. Teachers were forced to make a switch which was not always easy for everyone. Reaching out to students through distance learning was new for everyone and there was a lot of experimentation at a global level.

The rapid shift to digital teaching has undoubtedly ensured that in the future we will build on the knowledge already acquired. Integrating digital education into contemporary teaching practice poses a new challenge for everyone involved in contemporary education. But how exactly do you organise this? What things should you pay attention to? How do you ensure that implementing the digital aspect adds value to your lesson?

This course starts from a framework and links it to a practical approach. Here we go deeper into a number of digital tools that can offer added value. In addition, we will also look at how exactly we should approach blended learning. What is the added value and how does it contribute to creating a learning climate where self-regulated work is central?
