Vocabulary on distance teaching and telework

Distance teaching and telework have been experiencing unprecedented growth over the past year and a half, as a result of health authorities continuing to recommend that people limit face-to-face interactions.

It is in this context that the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF) and the Government of Canada’s Translation Bureau (TB) have collaborated to develop the Vocabulary on distance teaching and telework, now in its second version. The Vocabulary is a bilingual list of terms designating close to 200 concepts in these fields.

Wondering about the differences between a "learning pod" and a "microschool"? Or wondering how to translate "screen fatigue" into French? This Vocabulary will surely be useful for you.
