Specifically it will point to the benefits that can be observed in online/hybrid teacher education as well as the challenges that exist and how some of those challenges have been addressed. The presentation will also include a brief description of findings from a study on in-service immersion teacher perspectives of online learning.
The lecture will be given on Thursday 21st June in Seòmar Shomhaire, Ionad Iain Nobail at 3.30pm and is open to the public.
