Teaching at a Distance: Methods that Work

This series of help sheets is designed for people who are trying out distance and online education for the first time, and for teachers who have already taught at a distance and want to try something new.

Each help sheet outlines one approach to learning at a distance and provides guidance on how to put this into practice. All the help sheets are based on approaches covered in past Innovating Pedagogy reports and take into account that students may have only limited access to technology and the Internet.

Example of a help sheet

  1. Flipped learning
  2. Teachback
  3. Seamless learning
  4. Learning to learn
  5. Evaluating information
  6. Making thinking visible
  7. Personal inquiry learning
  8. Science in remote labs
  9. MOOCs to support language learning
  10. Maker culture
