ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title So You Want to Teach Online? 
Workshop description

Teaching online is much different than teaching face-to-face in a traditional classroom. Attend this webinar to learn what those differences are, what it takes to be a good online teacher, what technical skills are needed, and where you can find additional help for all of the above. Expect to participate in discussions and share ideas and concerns among the participants.

Prerequisites: Basic computer skills and comfort with navigating the Internet. This would also be a good workshop to take before taking “Moodle: Create a Course Web Site.”

Session length 1.5 hours 
Format Workshops: Synchronous online trainings, or series of trainings, in which facilitator and participants interact by voice or chat. 

To find out more about any of these workshops, including dates and times offered, please check the California Adult Education Professional Development Web site. This site has information on OTAN offered training, as well as training offered by CALPRO and CASAS.

  • Broadband Internet connection (DSL, Cable modem or faster, no dial-up).
  • Computer with speakers or headphones (some classes require microphones too).
  • Active e-mail account through registration for the course as an OTAN member.
