About 600 educators from 15 Asian countries and regions joined the United Board’s April 28 webinar, “Education in Emergencies: Online Teaching and Learning Strategies.” Presenters described some of the steps their institutions have taken to prepare faculty for online teaching, which included building comfort with technology, adapting content to fit online teaching and learning, tips for motivating student participation, and assessment of learning. The main goal, they stressed, is to create pathways to maintain teacher-student relationships and engage students in the learning process in meaningful ways.
The United Board expresses its appreciation to the four presenters: Eva Y.W. Wong, Hong Kong Baptist University; Vinay M., Christ University (India); Galvin Radley Ngo, Ateneo de Manila University (Philippines); and Binu Thomas, Marian College (India).
