Therefore, please register only if you know you can attend. If there is interest, a second webinar date will be made available.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Apply interactive features of synchronous technologies (eg. Zoom) in teaching
  2. Recite practical tips and learning considerations for online synchronous learning
  3. Define the advantages and disadvantages of synchronous online learning
