An invitation for staff to the Teaching Online Reading Group: @EHU_TORG

In 2020 the Teaching Online Reading Group for EHU academic staff members was launched (via MS Teams) by Dr Claire Hawkins, Senior Lecturer in Primary Computing Education and Sonia Edwards, Academic Engagement Manager in Library and Learning Services. The aim was to provide a space to discuss user-friendly, research-based articles about online teaching and learning. The group provides a valuable opportunity to actively and critically consider what it means to teach in a virtual world. It is ideal for people who have been forced to rush headlong into online teaching and want time to reflect and discuss their practice.
