Flipping the COVID-19 Classroom

The PSA's Teaching and Learning Network are pleased to be hosting their fourth series of webinars 'Teaching Politics and IR online: Key Issues, Skills and Pedagogy'. 

Friday 11th June, (3-4pm) led by Dr Adrian Millican and Dr Thomas Robinson, Durham University

Covid-19 has created a unique situation where adapting to teach online has created both a number of challenges and opportunities. In this webinar, we discuss the adaptations made to a level 1 statistics module including modes of delivery and the introduction of flipped lab sessions. We offer a frank reflection on how this has worked from both a staff and student perspective.

We discuss some of the clear benefits of this approach to teaching statistics and identify how this enforced change has actually promoted a number of positive changes in pedagogic practice. We end with a discussion of new innovations and suggestions for the future.

PSA Members who attend three or more of the T&L Webinar series receive a certificate of participation.

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.
