High Impact Teaching Strategies (HITS) in Remote and Flexible Learning is a webinar series that will examine 4 HITS in a remote and flexible learning context.

The webinars focus on the following 4 HITS:

  • Structuring Lessons
  • Explicit Teaching
  • Worked Examples
  • Differentiated Teaching.

The webinars will provide information about the HITS and explore practical examples, applications and adaptation opportunities.  

The webinars will highlight how these strategies support student confidence and learner agency, whether learning is taking place online, live through digital platforms, blended models or off-line.

These webinars are facilitated by the Department of Education and Training’s Teacher Professional Practice Unit in collaboration with expert presenter Dr Michael Philips, Monash University. Michael has conducted extensive research focusing on the knowledge expert teachers develop, informed by HITS, particularly in relation to technology integration.

Over each 60-minute webinar, you will:

  • explore the relevance of one of the HITS for the remote and flexible learning context
  • unpack practical examples that demonstrate how HITS can be adapted to the remote and flexible learning environment.

The webinars have been designed to standalone but can be used as a suite to build your knowledge. You will have the opportunity to ask questions.

You will learn:

  • how to enhance or incorporate HITS into your current lesson plans and learning activities to create effective learning in the remote learning environment
  • effective teaching strategies to boost and support student confidence, engagement and learner agency during remote and flexible learning
  • best practice models of online teaching and learning.
