During the pandemic, millions of students have been thrown into online versions of their classes and the results have varied. One thing that has become clear is that following an online lesson on a screen from home can be more taxing for students and it can be more difficult for the teacher to maintain their attention. One tool that we can use to cope with this is the implementation of microbreaks: short breaks during a period of work. In this workshop, writer teacher and teacher trainer Lindsay Clandfield will argue for the importance of incorporating microbreaks into our lessons. He will also provide practical examples of tasks that can be done during microbreaks to make them as productive as possible for everyone involved.
