New Leads in English Instruction: Integrating Distance Learning
July 1st and 2nd 2020,
The coronavirus crisis that is plaguing the world has created a new reality for language educators as well, and has required us to experiment with distance learning in various ways and through various means. It should be noted that many teachers already had extensive experience in remote learning, thanks to professional development courses they'd taken before the pandemic hit.
Summer school provides expert teachers with an ideal opportunity to showcase field models that make distance learning feel less remote, and to present the challenges involved. It also offers them a platform to work together to come up with creative solutions to these challenges.
Once again, summer school gives us the chance to capture the wealth of inspirational ideas and insights that reflect English teaching and learning in Israel, which are also relevant during routine times.
