  • Define the various types of communication & feedback needs between students and teachers
  • Explore tools, strategies and examples of effective communication & feedback systems, such as discussion boards and tools with commenting features
  • Build and get peer feedback on a plan for improving the health of their own communication systems


This workshop is designed for educators working in hybrid or remote learning environments.
