New TELall Blog Post: Leveraging on technological affordances for emergency remote teaching – experience with a large class undergraduate module
In this post by Associate Professor Yeong Foong May, Lee Zheng Wei and Lee Seow Chong (National University of Singapore), our authors explain how they read with interest blogs by Redmond & Brown (2020) and Dabner (2020) on the need to engage and support students in this unprecedented time of emergency remote teaching during COVID-19 and how it influenced their project based on the elements of the Online Engagement Framework for Higher Education (Redmond et al. 2018) in which they illustrated how these were used at NUS from August to November 2020 in an online undergraduate Life Sciences module with about 200 students.
