We’re excited to announce a new Distance Learner Forum for staff. These Forums are specifically aimed at those who deliver Distance Learning teaching or are considering delivering via Distance Learning in the future.
The Distance Learner Forum was established at this year’s Annual Learning and Teaching Conference. Book your place on these courses online.
This year there are 3 Distance Learning Forums:
Distance Learning Forum 1: Strategies for Monitoring Student Engagement
Tuesday 22nd October 2019, 1pm-2pm, E3 E-learning Training Room
In the first of these special Distance Learner Forums we will be looking at how you measure student engagement with learning activities in Blackboard. Blackboard has many different types of learning opportunities and activities. In this session, we will be looking at how we can measure student engagement with Blackboard for Distance Learning students.
Distance Learning Forum 2: Creating a Podcast
Tuesday 18th February 2020, 1pm-2pm, E3 E-learning Training Room
In the second of our Distance Learner Forums, we will be looking at Creating Podcasts. Podcasts are a great way to keep your students engaged with the content that you are creating as well as giving them opportunities to build activities into the podcasts. We’ll look at successful podcast design whilst also looking at the practicalities for creating your podcast and embedding it into your Blackboard course.
Distance Learning Forum 3: Gauging Student Opinion from a Distance
Tuesday 26th May 2020, 1pm-2pm, E3 E-learning Training Room
In the third of our Distance Learner Forums, we will be looking at how you can gauge student opinion from a distance. We’ll discuss and present strategies on how to allow distance learning students to feel part of a community and also to learn from each other. We’ll introduce activities that can be done in Blackboard to support this as well as other technologies such as online polling and Skype for Business.
We hope that you’ll be able to attend these forums. Please contact us with any questions.
