online tools, synchronous learning, asynchronous learning
There are arguments for the benefits of both synchronous and asynchronous learning in an online format, but in the times of a global pandemic, what we know has been called into question as the context has changed. In this discussion session, we’ll contemplate the pros and cons of synchronous and asynchronous learning as many of us will be teaching hybrid or online classes as colleges and universities decide how social distancing is compatible with education. We’ll share tools and tips for both types of learning and whether a combination of synchronous and asynchronous methods can be effective.
