Free Online Course on Teaching Young Learners Online

Fully Funded

Country: UK


Work together to plan, create, and facilitate inclusive online learning that engages and inspires young people aged 5 to 17.

Many teachers have recently found themselves having to adapt quickly to dramatically different teaching contexts in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in widespread school, college, and university closures.

On this course from the British Council, you’ll explore online teaching in both theory and practice – how to plan accessible online lessons and assessments, what online safety looks like, and how best to build relationships with young learners.

You’ll come away understanding how to include and engage learners online, both in synchronous and asynchronous environments.

  • Week 1: Meaningful interaction
    Creating the best conditions for your learners to interact meaningfully and learn together online
  • Week 2: Engagement, content and differentiation

  • Week 3: Practice, assessment and progress
