Vocabulary on distance teaching and telework

While health authorities are recommending that people limit face-to-face interactions, distance teaching and telework are experiencing unprecedented growth.

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, which presents the bilingual terminology for more than 80 concepts in these fields.

Whether you are interested in learning more about the subtle differences between a "dual-mode course" and a "hybrid course" or why the terms "telework" and "working from home" are not considered synonyms, this vocabulary will undoubtedly be useful to you.
