At the moment, due to the Covid situation, all our teaching activities happen online through ZOOM. Please find some important information about our online class below:
Most students don't like to connect to the camera, but please ask them in a friendly way to still enable them. Some students have good reasons to disable it - we will inform you in advance about this.
In each class on saturday we will create a breakout room with maximum 4 students, so they can work together in the exercises. The supporting instructors can be assigned to a group and the main mentor can switch through them.
Support in the classes
In each class, the following people are present:
Yogi, Vincent and/or Diana to manage
The Main Instructor
One or more supporting instructors
Outside the classes, there are many volunteers to further help students.

Before the class
10 minutes before the class we will share the Zoom link in the class channels (i.e. Jan2020-1). Around 18h all students will join and we will start the class then as well.
If you are a new (supporting) instructor, feel free to write a quick intro about yourself in the class channel before the class starts! Or you can introduce yourself in the class, of course.
At the beginning of the class
Migracode Team will manage the first 5 minutes, with an introduction
Then we will split the class in 2 groups: Spanish and English students
The Main & Supporting Instructors can do a quick introduction (Introduce yourself, explain where you work, etc.)
Then the main instructor will lead the class
At the end of the class
The main instructor will explain and copy the Homework in the Trello Board. Our Head of Education will help you with this as well.
