Are you new to, or have you recently started teaching online and have noticed how engaging your students online is different from face-to-face? Join me in this talk to delve into specific, practical ways to engage students effectively in online environments. We will start by unpacking the different facets of student engagement in the vastly digitized ELT world of today and subsequently explore why engaging students is an important consideration when planning and delivering our lessons online.
