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.
Please feel free to circulate and use it. You are very welcome to customize it for your local contexts, but please acknowledge its origins if you do so (and it would be very interesting for us if you let us know how you have used it!)
Click here to access the online compendium of virtual Learning and Teaching Resources.
This list is offered in the spirit of supporting teaching, learning and both the student and staff experience. The resources are not presented as ‘recommendations’, but as suggestions, with users best placed to select and adapt what works for them.
This compendium evolved from #LTHEchat 170 and is now merged within SEDA. Aware of that the volume of resources available is somewhat overwhelming during #LTHEchat 173 Question 5 was posed to invite colleagues to post their ‘go to’ resource which has help us to curated the very best resources, pulling them together into a single space for ease of navigation.
