Sun, Nov 22, 11:20-11:45 JST

Classroom social dynamics are an essential part of the learning process. However, in the context of emergency remote teaching, the online classroom changes how social interactions occur, arguably removing embodied face-to-face socialisation from the learning experience. Such a situation may pose significant problems for students and learning overall. This presentation presents practical suggestions for building social richness in online ELT, which are intended to increase group interactivity and cohesiveness and support overall learning outcomes.
