The 6Es

Most teachers have had minimal or no experience in concurrent delivery before the pandemic. There are many challenges that must be considered, including;

  • How do we keep students engaged?
  • How do we ensure that our students receive an equivalent experience?
  • What technology do we need?

As you design your Semester 2 concurrent classes, take some time to consider each of the six E’s. If you need any ideas or assistance, please contact us at email below.

What are the 6Es?

To help you address these challenges, our Learning Design team at the College of Design & Social Context have developed a self-assessment tool that aims to ensure that your concurrent delivery is successful for both you and your students. We call it “The 6 E’s of Teaching & Learning”:

  • Expectations

    Set clear expectations around student participation, including peer and teacher interactions and visibility of remote students during class.

  • Engagement

    Engage students by utilising active and blended learning strategies. Lectures can be recorded and done before class. (See our Case Studies for examples).

  • Experience

    Create a unique student experience. Think about classroom management techniques, physical and virtual organisation, groupwork and station-based learning. (See our list of Effective Teaching Strategies for some ideas).

  • Equity

    Ensure equal access and opportunities for all students (face-to-face and remote) to learn and achieve using suitable teaching strategies.

  • Enhancement

    Source appropriate digital technologies to enhance the authenticity and accessibility of activities and assessments for all students. (See the Concurrent Tech Matrix for examples)

  • Ease

    Use solutions that are quick and easy to setup and work with to save time and headaches
