In small groups, you will address topics such as how you can build virtual learning communities, which tools are best suited for different forms of communication, and how you can best motivate students to learn. Students have different needs. Especially through the use of digital media in teaching, it is possible to respond to them.

The module gives you the opportunity to learn in an international context. You have the option of taking it as a stand-alone module or as a part of the Digitally Competent Educators program.

Course participants will submit a final assignment in which they draw a personal connection between the topics covered and their respective fields of professional activity.
