Time: 9:15am - 3:55pm
In an unprecedented year when teaching and learning has moved rapidly online, the opportunity to share what has been learned has never been more vital as a blended approach to learning is here to stay. In light of the QMUL 2030 strategy on online teaching, it has never been more important to develop tools and techniques for teaching and learn from each other’s experience.
There are many factors to consider with a move to online learning for both the staff and students and questions of engagement, interactivity, synchronicity and inclusion are all crucial to consider when designing materials and assessment for a virtual environment.
The aim of this conference is to explore aspects of online learning, teaching and delivery and to discover new ideas as we move forward with a blended learning approach.
All sessions are held on MS Teams. Please remember to keep your microphone on mute during the session. All sessions will be started by the Chair.
