In this three-part video series, we sit down with Kevin McAlpin to ask his advice on behalf of teachers and education professionals doing their job on unfamiliar digital terrain. Welsh schools went online before Christmas and are set to start up again virtually at the beginning of next term. Moreover, with the new Tier 4 coronavirus restrictions hitting London and the surrounding areas, there’s a good chance more parts of the UK and even other countries will soon follow suit. Therefore, this advice is timely for all.
An expert in learning and development, Kevin is the author of Virtual Facilitation and Meetings: A Desktop Reference for Running a Successful Online Classroom. He is the founder and Chief Learning Officer of Performance Coaching International, where he has delivered thousands of hours of in-person and online training courses on leadership, trust and courageous conversations. His and his organisation’s clients include the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, FedEx, Cancer Research and 47 of the FTSE 100 companies, from Barclays and HSBC to BT and Vodafone.
Today, we ask Kevin what the differences are between teaching in a virtual classroom and delivering in-person instruction.
