As the world begins to open up again, Eaquals continues to provide support and training for both members and non-members within the international education sector as needed. The impact of the pandemic has been far-reaching and is ongoing and, as such, we will continue to offer resources, links, information and training as appropriate.
Eaquals Statement | The Eaquals Board of Trustees released a statement at the outset of the pandemic which can be accessed here:
Eaquals Training Support Webinars | Given the current situation in many countries as a result of Covid19, there was an immediate and ongoing shift towards delivering online provision. To help #eaqualsmembers and #eaqualsfamily adjust to these fast-changing circumstances, Eaquals developed and continues to offer a series of webinars focussed on the delivery of online language teaching. These have been made available to both members and non-members.
The webinars have covered a wide range of areas related to online provision i.e. Using Zoom for Online Teaching | Teaching Asynchronously | Teaching YLs Online | Assisting with the Management of Online Learning | Managing in a world of online teaching: It’s still about people, price, product, promotion & place
Eaquals Training Support Q&A Sessions | As a follow on from the initial training webinars offered by Eaquals, Q&A sessions were run which provided participants with the opportunity to have their questions and queries addressed by expert trainers such as Bethan Edwards on Using Zoom, Thom Kiddle on Teaching Asynchronously, Sian Deeble on Teaching YLs Online and Chris Farrell on Assisting with the Management of Online Learning.
Eaquals Members Case Studies | Eaquals members benefit from being part of a global network which shares best practice, knowledge and expertise. Members response to the current challenge emphasises their resilience, creativity and know-how. Eaquals is very grateful to those members who shared their journey into online provision with us:
- AVO Language & Examination Centre | Management of the transition to online teaching.
- The London School | The Flipped Model: Ensuring Excellence in the VLE
- ATC Language Schools | Remote Pastoral Care: Looking after student welfare during lockdown
Eaquals Resources | Many excellent, free resources have been made available online for both teachers and managers. Eaquals has compiled a detailed list of these resources so that all information is easily accessible. However, this list is by no means exhaustive. If you have some additional quality resources that you would like to share with the #eaqualsfamily, please let us know.
The Eaquals team works hard to ensure that we provide continued support for all of our members across the Eaquals network. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
