Member benefit webinars – Covid-19 series

‘From emergency remote teaching to resilient systems for higher education’

21 and 28 April 09:00 BST

Details from Advance HE are here:

The last four weeks has seen an exceptional effort by the HE sector to continue to deliver or attain learning outcomes in non-ideal circumstances.  Students and staff recognised that achieving a perfect online learning experience was probably out of reach in the time frame available and most have exhibited great patience and humanity. However, as the crisis is set to continue into the next academic year, both returning and new students will be expecting an effective, accessible and flexible learning experience.

In the next two webinars in our COVID-19 series we will hear from academics on the frontline of the current crisis and those who have had years of experience in delivering flexible and accessible higher education. This webinar will help us to reflect on what we have learnt from this crisis to ensure that our approaches to curriculum design are flexible and agile enough to cope with a range of potential scenarios from some students not being able to attend campus either due to travel or health restrictions and/or further outbreaks leading to rapid campus closures.

Both webinars will be chaired by Advance HE’s Dr Kay Hack, Principal Adviser (Learning and Teaching). Ahead of the webinar, Kay has written a blog offering initial insights. Read the blog here.

At Advance HE, we want our member benefits to be accessible to as many of our members as possible. All webinars in the Connect Event Series are recorded and available to watch at your convenience via the member benefits group on Advance HE Connect.
