Digital Learning Development in September and October

Now updated with October sessions.

We are pleased to share our upcoming staff development sessions that are open to all UAL staff across all colleges and departments. All sessions will be hosted online.

Your college may also have additional sessions available to you that you can find on ESS. Contact your college’s Digital Learning team if you have any questions.

If you have any questions about the sessions below, please contact us at

How to sign up:

Select the session title and a new tab will open. You will be directed to log-in to ESS and choose which session you want to sign up for. Within 2 business days after signing up, you will receive an Outlook calendar invitation with the details to join the session.


If you book a session and later need to cancel, please decline the Outlook invitation and cancel your booking in ESS. Cancelling your booking in ESS will allow other colleagues to book in your place.


If you attend the session, you may request that session’s recording from the facilitator at the end. If you are unable to join in real-time, you can browse the self-paced development library on Canvas (UAL staff login required). Please do not book a session that you are unable to join in real time just to request a recording. We will be posting more recordings on Canvas in October.

Upcoming sessions:

Join us to explore digital tools, discuss how to design your teaching and student support, and learn how to use the platforms we support.

    Hello, I was wondering if it would be possible to include UAL Academic Support Online staff development in this development programme?

    I’d like to demonstrate how each Course team can connect their Moodle to each student’s total Academic Support environment, through a single hyperlink.

    Here, each student’s live provision updates in realtime. Student experience direct registration / entry to all Academic Support sessions through a single, unified registration process. This supports parity of access to all the Course, College and university Academic Support intended for each student.

    I’d also like to demonstrate how Course teams are using customised Academic Support Online landing pages. For example, as a place to introduce all live interconnected and complimentary provision (including unit-specific Academic Support resources) to Course Moodle pages.

    The 17th of September is a Thursday, not a Wednesday. Please can you clarify the actual date.
    Thank you
