Many schools in South East Asia have recently closed due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, forcing them to move entirely to an online and distance learning environment in a matter of weeks.
Not knowing how long this situation may last, schools and teachers have had to completely shift the way they’re delivering an education to the students in their care. In recent weeks, we’ve heard several examples of how some have admirably adapted.
Nevertheless, moving from the classroom to online learning presents new challenges. To lend support to schools, we were asked by colleagues at Dulwich College International if we could offer some helpful advice on the kind of assessment and feedback practices you could put to use in an online context.
Here, Professor Stuart Kime, our Director of Education, and Jamie Scott, Director of Partnerships, discuss the challenges, as well as some strategies to help in this challenging predicament.
