The Virtual Teacher:

Part 2

Designing assessments and activities for a virtual classroom

In the first part of the Virtual Teacher: Part 1’ – a set of four workshops – teachers learned about the different models of online teaching and the skills needed to deliver engaging and effective lessons online. The workshops were a runaway success with more than 700 teachers from across the country participating.

‘The Virtual Teacher: Part 2’ is a set of three workshops that focus on assessments and activities from a virtual classroom perspective but are not limited to it.

The course is divided into three standalone workshops. Each workshop is certified by Quantum University. It is advised that teachers opt for all three workshops but teachers have the freedom to pick and choose what’s most relevant to them.

Course content:​

The course is divided into three workshops:

Each workshop is 60 to 90 minutes in length.

Course overview:

While assessments are often equated with traditional tests – educators can use a diverse array of assessment tools and methods to measure everything from a four-year-old’s readiness for kindergarten to a twelfth-grade student’s comprehension of advanced physics. Just as academic lessons have different functions, assessments are typically designed to measure specific elements of learning—e.g., the level of knowledge a student already has about the concept or the skill the teacher is planning to teach or the ability to comprehend and analyse different types of texts and readings. Assessments also are used to identify individual student weaknesses and strengths so that educators can provide specialised academic support.

During this workshop teachers will learn about:

  • The definition of assessments (in the 21st century)
  • Types of assessments
  • Top 10 ways to assess their students
  • Digital tools available for assessments

Research shows that educational experiences that are active, social, contextual, engaging, and student-owned lead to deeper learning. Working together to solve problems and complete projects deepen students’ learning and build collaborative skills.

During this workshop teachers will learn about:

  1. Collaborative learning and its benefits
  2. Tuckman’s model
  3. Strategies for collaborative online learning
  4. How to design activities
  5. Examples of collaborative learning

The old-school model of passively learning facts and reciting them out of context is no longer sufficient to prepare students to survive in today’s world. Solving highly complex problems requires that students have both fundamental skills (reading, writing, and math) and 21st century skills (teamwork, problem-solving, research gathering, time management, information synthesising, utilizing high tech tools). With this combination of skills, students become directors and managers of their learning process, guided and mentored by a skilled teacher.

During this workshop teachers will learn about:

  • PBL
  • Essential project design elements
  • How to create a project-based learning lesson
  • 20 smart ideas for a PBL lesson
