An Introduction to Online Learning: Rachel Ford (Primary)

Members $75 / Non-members $110 / Non-member + Membership $215

Rachel Ford is a specialist PE teacher working at RDFZ King's College, Hangzhou, China in the Primary section of the school and is interested in improving online learning in HPE. At the time of the recording, Rachel was entering her 9th week of online teaching. Online teaching took Rachel by surprise - she thought she was planning for the short term, but she was wrong. 

The webinar focuses on the lessons learnt and mistakes she has made. Topics addressed include:

  • Thinking about teaching online for longer than just a few weeks
  • A review of examples of Rachel’s resources  
  • Involving parents and their participation in PE with their children
  • How do you know if your lessons are going well?
  • Dealing with daily changes during the pandemic
  • Getting clear about the big concepts that you are trying to teach and how do you do this online?
  • The positives from teaching online

"Learning from Rachel and her being able to discuss what worked for her and what didn't really has already benefited what I am planning to do." Webinar attendee 2020
