Seminar

Supporting Students in Unprecedented Times

PSA Teaching and Learning Network

The second in our PSA Teaching and Learning Network Webinar Series 'Teaching Politics Online: Pedagogy, Support, Community'. 

Thursday 21st  May, 3-4pm, Mark Shanahan (University of Reading)

Over the last two months we've all had to adapt to a new online environment where both students and academics are remote from each other, often stretching the bonds of tutor systems beyond what any of us would like. So, in this new Zoom-fuelled world, where technological confidence is a must, how can we keep listening to students? How do we respond to their needs? Mark Shanahan, HoD for Politics & IR at the University of Reading and a former Director of Teaching and Learning shares his experience on working with staff, reps and the student body to 'keep the conversations going.' (Hint: mass emails don't work!).

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.
