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.
- 14-18/12/2020 SEDA Winter Festival “The programme covers a wide range of educational change and development – from ways to foster our learners’ inner feedback, through various individual and institutional responses to the COVID-19 crisis and moves to virtual teaching and online support, including both staff and student perspectives, with contributions from across the UK and from China.”
