Decalogue for the improvement of online teaching: Proposal to educate in discontinuous face-to-face contexts
The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken the foundations of our education. We have found ourselves faced with the impossibility of our students being able to travel to educational centers, which have been closed due to the confinement decreed in most countries. Unexpectedly, educational institutions have been forced to adopt emergency solutions, migrating to remote non-face-to-face teaching models, which have made it possible to stop the coup. Based on this experience, we begin to assess whether online education can be a valid ally that allows the development of hybrid solutions in our educational systems. The answer is yes, although what has been done so far is not, strictly speaking, online education.
The book “Decalogue for the improvement of online teaching: Proposal to educate in discontinuous face-to-face contexts”, coordinated by Albert Sangrà and with a large participation of researchers from Edul@by professors from the UOC’s Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, presents a series of proposals to improve online education and to face future situations of discontinuous presence that may arise due to possible new total or partial confinements. It wants to be a support instrument for all education professionals, at this beginning of the course, who need or want to take full advantage of the transformative potential that online education offers.
