As lecturer in learning and teaching responsible for the PGCTHE, I keep an eye out for new resources to help our staff teach effectively online. This includes externally-provided webinars, toolkits, publications and other resources. Because active learning is high on our university agenda, I’m particularly keen to share guidance for moving active learning online. Below I’ve listed items that came to my attention in the past week. In the interest of clarity, our policy is to show the titles and descriptions in the language of delivery.
- 23-27/11/2020, International Virtual Meeting of Teaching, Learning & Assessment in Higher Education – “Speakers include David Boud, David Carless, María Assunção Flores, Liisa Postareff, Ana Remesal, Pete Boyd, Phil Dawson, Daniela Bruna, Carlos González, Ernesto Panadero, Gavin Brown, Verónica Santelices, Gonzalo Cifuentes, Stephen Darwin and Verónica Villarroel.“
- 26/11/2020, Future Teacher Talks, “Working with Rich Media 1 – Images“
- ACUE (5/11/2020), “New Resource for Inclusive and Equitable Teaching“
- Education Technology, “Streamlining the virtual student experience webinar recording”
- Enhancing Digital Teaching and Learning, “The Student Perspective of Online/Remote Teaching webinar recording”
- Future Teacher Talks, “Inclusive Practice“
- Gettin’ Air – the Open Pedagogy Podcast
- Pedagodzilla, “The pedagogic podcast with the pop culture core: This podcast is an elaborate effort to boost and broaden our knowledge of pedagogic theory, practice and research. It’s a heck of a dry subject though, so we have a bit of fun by clumsily slapping geeky analogies over the top from our favorite bits of pop culture nerdery. Each episode we’ll skim just enough information to blag a chunk of pedagogy, and then give it a damn good kicking.”
