Whether you teach in a Medical Assisting or an Intensive English Program, active and student-centric online classrooms are a must and this session will cover strategies to make yours shine!

Online education affords students, staff and faculty a great deal of flexibility, including the ability to take exams from home. IDL students will inevitably need to take a high-stakes exam, so how do you ensure they are taking the exam? During this session our presenters will discuss SAP, high-stakes exams and maintaining academic integrity in an IDL environment.

How can we ensure online communication translates to real-world progress? Incorporating objectives focused on online interaction and mediation inform students’ progress, while enhancing strategies used to negotiate meaning in complex situations. This session will explore mediation and online communication, including targeted sample lessons designed to support progress from a distance.
After two energizing days of collaboration and knowledge-sharing, we come together as a group to reflect on the lessons learned throughout the conference, over the years and during these most extraordinary times. We’ll hear lessons learned from a diverse group of ACCET member schools and undoubtedly use what we have learned to move forward, together, towards tomorrow.
