Online Teaching and the ‘Disadvantage Gap’


The PSA's Teaching and Learning Network are pleased to announce their second series of webinars on 'Teaching Politics and IR Online: Design Matters', this time in conjunction with our colleagues at the British International Studies Association (BISA).

Tuesday 21 July, 3-4pm, led by Frands Pedersen (University of Westminster)

To what extent does the move to online teaching delivery reduce or enlarge the so-called ‘disadvantage gap’? This presentation will first summarise the factors that might influence the disadvantage gap, before considering how online delivery impacts differently on students depending on their social and physical environments, and their socio-economic and educational backgrounds, before coming up with potential solutions for when designing your content.

Please ensure you register prior to the event. The webinar will be hosted via Zoom and joining instructions will be sent to participants the morning of the event.
