Event Details

This event is the first of our Summer 2020 series: ‘Your blend: opportunities and challenges in blended learning and teaching’,  hosted by the Centre for Learning & Teaching.

Join us for this fast-paced programme of lightning talks where staff who teach, or support learning and teaching, share with colleagues their practical tips and positive experiences of moving to online teaching in response to Covid-19. We’ll find out what went well, what worked (and what didn’t) and explore aspects of teaching online that may change the way we approach learning and teaching in the next academic year – and beyond. 

Book your place to this online (Teams) event by emailing Sue Watts at: clt@bath.ac.uk.
