IATEFL Learning Technologies Online Conference Reviews

Online learning and teaching are topics that often get discussed in terms of the challenges they pose. However, rarely do we get to hear robust solutions that respond to these challenges. In his talk on ensuring quality in online language learning, Nik Peachey presented challenges both from the perspectives of teachers and students and followed them up with some ways of mitigating them by sharing initiatives that he has supported or led at English Up, a 100% online school. With online learning, students face a range of challenges, including the double-edge of experience where poor previous online learning experience can affect their perception of the course they are taking.

It's interesting how the challenges faced by teachers mirror those of their learners, pivoting on the very same double-edged sword of experience. Nik placed the human element firmly at the heart of his solutions.
