Online Education Webinars

The Australian Embassy in Brazil and the Brazilian Ministry of Education joined efforts to organise a webinar series on the topic of online education.

The purpose of the webinars is to showcase practical applications of the online education tools, both for professors in classrooms and higher education institution managers. The webinars will see Australian educators in conversation with Brazilian experts discussing common challenges and methodological approaches to online education, from designing courses, ensuring quality, professional development and student experiences.

Brazilian educators are invited to attend, with those attending all six webinars receiving a certificate of attendance. The webinars will be hosted in the ZOOM Platform in English and there will be simultaneous translation to Portuguese. All webinars will be offered with no cost for attendance.
