Seminar

'What campus Universities can learn from online/distance ones'

PSA Teaching and Learning Network

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

Wednesday 27th May, 3-4pm, Georgina Blakeley (University of Huddersfield)

The question of what, if anything, campus universities can learn from universities whose main business is distance-learning was at the forefront of my mind as I recently returned to a position at the University of Huddersfield following over 13 years at the Open University where I worked on entry-level interdisciplinary social science modules. Little did I know just how invaluable this self-reflection would become as Huddersfield, like many other institutions, rushed to move teaching online. This session will cover what can be done to just get by when having to move teaching online in a hurry while also covering some of the more longer-term lessons that can be learned from the experience of distance-learning for those teaching and supporting students starting to study the social sciences when time is less of an issue.

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.
