Digital Education staff development in September 2021

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.

We have a variety of new sessions this September:

  • Embedding Digital Well-being in the Curriculum
  • Using Microsoft Teams for Learning and Teaching Activities
  • Designing asynchronous learning activities
  • Getting started with myblog: developing a community of ideas.

You can join Pedagogy, Presence and Placemaking: building community and belonging in online teaching where David White, UAL Head of Digital Education, will facilitate an exploration of different  approaches to nurturing  community and belonging within student groups in online teaching. Other sessions focus on inclusive learning, educational videos, and learning platforms: Workflow, Moodle, Padlet, Collaborate Ultra and Panopto.

If you have any questions, please contact Digital Education through MySupport.
