Luke Treadwell & Tanja Rykovska, AMES Australia
Wednesday 18 November, 4:00-5:30pm AEDT
This workshop is based on the premise that digital literacy is vital for living, learning, and working in contemporary Australian society and therefore needs to be a key feature as both a support and an outcome of any relevant EAL program. The session will detail the experience and learnings of one such program that was specifically designed (pre-COVID) to engage low level EAL learners in online learning. The session will cover the basic course design principles of our EAL online courses, the strategies developed to engage and support the learners and their challenges and achievements learning in an online environment. Luke and Tanja’s presentation will be followed by Q&A and small group discussion.
