*NEW* QM Academy and E-Learning Unit’s ‘Show and Share’ café

16 July 2020 13.30pm

During July and August 2020 the ELU and QM Academy will be teaming up with various staff across the University to share some of their stories of how they converted their practical face to face teaching into online activities during lockdown.

These informal show and share events have been designed to show practice across Queen Mary and invite open discussion with participants. During these events staff will share their successes as well as lessons learned from online delivery.

The first 3 events will focus on adapting practical practice for online delivery. Future events in August will focus on assessment and other online teaching and learning practices.
