Tandem Teaching!

by Vijay Kumar
Posted on 13 September, 2009

Simply put, Tandem Teaching is a concept where 2 or more subject matter experts (SME) teach a topic to an audience in a live virtual classroom (LVC).

For example, I conduct LVCs covering over 37 topics on Retailing as 90-minutes lecture sessions at WiZiQ. Let us say I am delivering a lecture to a group of participants on RFID. I can commence a 45-minutes lecture on the basics of RFID and invite an expert situated abroad for the rest of the 45-minutes to continue the session on say implementing RFID projects by sharing microphone control.

Result? Knowledge multiplied!

Warm Regards

Hi Vijay:

We will attempting something similar in the Twitter and Teachers Workshop. We also did this on the recent ETCon too.

Thanks

It is really a good method to teach.

Hey Vijay,

I agree, this is definitely a way to go. As Vikrama said, I am doing this with the ETCon, but this is more a classic conference approach.

Building a class on different teachers would be really great.

I tried it in a public lesson. I invited a student who is an expert in the field of 18th century art, when I held a lesson on interpreting a song that depicted Van Gogh´s life. His level of English is intermediate, but it generated a lot of discussion in the chat box between the students.
It was a very nice experience!

Thank you for triggering a thought. We run a school (eSchool Kerala) to train teachers in Kerala to use www.wiziq.com to teach online. I happen to be the Master Trainer. We offer blended learning to teachers and trainers.

Now that you have triggered the thought, we plan to have 2 or more subject matter experts (SME) teach a topic to an audience in a live virtual classroom (LVC).

Thanks again Mr. Vijaya Kumar
