The challenges of teaching online have become more and more demanding everyday; this is due to the fact that our students’ motivation is being drained due to the recent changes in their daily lives. As teachers, we need to face up to the fact that teaching is evolving and that we need to help learners forget they are in lockdown so as to enhance their learning process. Hence, the objective of this workshop is to talk about the main challenges of distance teaching and learning and the strategies we need to implement in our virtual classrooms so as to navigate them with total confidence; thus promoting a healthy learning environment by helping our pupils develop their emotional intelligence.
