Online Teacher Certification
Making online bridge lessons more engaging and effective is the purpose of a new “how to teach” workshop jointly sponsored by ACBL and the Education Foundation, and in consultation with the ABTA.  It introduces teachers to apps/websites that offer unique teaching capabilities and uses each to demonstrate creative lesson dynamics. Teachers can pick and choose what works best for them. The workshop is content neutral so teachers can use the apps and lesson structures they learn with any materials.

The workshop also assists teachers in creating or repurposing online lessons.

The Online Teacher Certification Workshop was designed by the creator of ACBL’s Best Practices Workshop, it consists of four sessions spread over two days. Note that you must attend all four sessions. Participants have the opportunity to become Certified ACBL Online Teachers at optional sessions later the same week.

Qualifications: You must be able to navigate multiple windows, share screens, set up Zoom breakouts and polls, use SharkBridge’s Teaching Console and learn new apps. Note that proficiency must be demonstrated before participation in workshop. You can find helpful tips and tutorials in our Setting Up 4 Success page.
