Five Strategies for Learning Online

School Education Gateway - Teacher Academy via Independent


As teachers we have busy work schedules, but more importantly, we have schedules that are not very flexible, usually tied to a strict teaching timetable. That makes it more complicated to attend face-to-face professional development such as a workshop or conference. Online learning has therefore become for many teachers a useful additional layer to their professional development activities, something we want to support and promote at the Teacher Academy.

However, online learning can easily be overwhelming. Especially in open learning settings like the online courses offered at the Teacher Academy. These courses are organised as MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses – meaning they are open to anyone who wants to join. This results in hundreds and even thousands of participants joining a course. If you are not used to learning in such an environment, this can be a challenge. In this short self-paced course, we therefore introduce you to five key strategies to help you make the most out of our courses and support your online learning in general.

The following five strategies will be addressed on the course:

Strategy 1: Reflect on how you learn
Strategy 2: Plan your learning
Strategy 3: Use a learning diary
Strategy 4: Build a personal learning network
Strategy 5: Find support
