Inclusive (online) teaching practice and COVID-19

Friday 17 April 2020

Inclusive (online) teaching practice and COVID-19

For: Teachers, education support staff, policy officers

Host: Dr. Aya Ezawa (Diversity Officer / University Lecturer Modern Japanese Studies)

Good teaching enables all students to be inspired, engage and develop themselves. The restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 pose new challenges to our teaching: online platforms come with different classroom dynamics. Students are sometimes literally invisible, online tools are not necessarily accessible for students with impairments and students are faced with unknown issues outside of the classroom. 

This webinar answers questions like:

  • How can remote teaching be inclusive?
  • What does it mean to teach under the conditions imposed by COVID-19 measures?

In addition to introducing diversity and inclusion in the context of teaching and pedagogy, this webinar will offer an interactive discussion forum.

No registration is required, just join via: https://smart.newrow.com/#/room/wvb-710 

If you have additional questions, please ask them through the Remote Teaching Tile in the Helpdesk Portal.

Onderwijsondersteunende Webinars

The Centre for Innovation and ICLON are organising webinars to give support on remote teaching. Webinars are scheduled at 13:00 and will provide information and answer questions on technical and didacital needs for remote teaching. They are open to all teachers and staff at Leiden University and are conducted in English.  

Webinars will be recorded in order to train Leiden University staff in the context of remote teaching. If you do not wish to be recorded, please do not turn on your camera during the class. After the webinar, the recording will be made available in the Video Portal. The recording will be available until 31 March 2022. These recordings can be used for further education if necessary.

Webinar Guidelines

To ensure a positive webinar experience for everyone, please pay attention to the following Guidelines: 

  • We will start at the designated time, no “Leids kwartiertje”. Coming in late means that you will miss out on the introduction and it will be harder to follow the story.
  • Please connect 5 minutes before the start time so that you can test your audio and webcam. Also check your browser: Kaltura Live Room works best in Chrome. 
  • Check your background for privacy. Make sure there is nothing visible that you don’t want shown. 
  • Are there other people in your home? Inform them you are in a call and you don’t want to be disturbed. 
  • Remember that the webinar will focus on pedagogy to support teachers. Other questions not answered may be submitted to ISSC helpdesk.

Do you have problems with audio or video?

  • Log out and log in again.
  • Consider using a different device (if you are on a phone, switch to a computer, or vise versa). 
  • Check your internet connection.
  • Check your browser. Kaltura Live Room works best in Chrome.
  • Contact ISSC helpdesk if the problem persists.
