Digital Learning staff development in January 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 using Collaborate Ultra.

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 on those.

If you have any questions, please contact us through MySupport.


If you will need captions or other support, please contact us through MySupport when you register, or at least 3 days before your session.

How to sign up:

  1. Select the session title to go to the ESS sign-up page.
  2. Log-in to ESS
  3. Select the session time you want to join.
  4. Within 2 business days after signing up, we will send you 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 presenter. 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.

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.
