You can use a plethora of digital tools to make your teaching more fun, efficient and accessible. But when it comes to choosing between videos, quizzes, polls or online discussions, what tool do you choose and why?

During this training we will discuss how you can use digital tools to strengthen your teaching and to foster student engagement. You will decide in what part of your lecture or workgroup you want to implement a tool, gather ideas on what tool would fit best and start with the implementation.

If you want to know more about how to use digital tools not just as a means of interaction, but also as a means to achieve your learning goals, this is the training you’re looking for.
