Join our higher education webinar series: transitioning to online

  • 4 Min Read

In these difficult times, higher education institutions in many countries are making an adjustment to distance teaching and learning. For some, technology will be an already familiar part of the teaching and learning experience through a blended model. For others, it will be a whole new experience.

We are holding a series of webinars that we hope will help you if you are having to navigate the process of taking learning online. We invite you to join us from 23 April for:

  • Webinar 1: How to use technology to enhance the learning experience – this session will explore how to audit online courses of learning, enhance the student experience and actively engage them in personalised learning journeys (23 April, 11:00-12:00 BST [GMT+1])
  • Webinar 2: Measuring your online success – discover how learning analytics can drive better decision making and improve student performance and retention (7 May, 11:00-12:00 BST [GMT+1])
  • Webinar 3: Planning for the future – consider how to leverage the investment in online learning to maximise the virtual experience for students once back onsite (21 May, 2:00-3:00 BST [GMT+1]).

If you can’t attend but are interested in the content, you can still register for one or more of the sessions and we’ll send you the recordings afterwards.

Interaction, feedback and collaboration play an important role in the face-to-face teaching process and these important elements shouldn’t be lost when learning goes online. Digitally enabled learning can incorporate a range of content types and opportunities for learners to interact with their course, peers, or faculty. What’s more, a culture of collaboration can be enabled and supported through the learning platform.

Increasing familiarity with the tools of the learning platform can help educators and administrators save time and streamline tasks in support of students. Ultimately, the aim is to provide students with access to the resources they need, to maintain connections between course participants and teaching staff and enable the achievement of desired learning outcomes.

This webinar series is designed to provide information and advice on transitioning to online learning.

For those for whom this is a sudden shift, and who need additional support, we also have a resource page for practical help. Educators extending their learning programmes and wishing to explore additional functionality to deliver engaging learning experiences will also benefit from the sessions.

We hope you can join us on one or more of the webinars – we look forward to welcoming you.
