Design Your CPD and Short Course – a new four-part workshop series

4 March 2014

cpd and short course workshops

Get a practical introduction to the new CPD and Short Courses Toolkit by attending a series of four linked lunchtime workshops.

Each workshop will include a short presentation followed by an activity using a component of the toolkit. Participants will also be asked to think about their courses and introduce them online to other course participants. Sandwiches and coffee will be provided.

In addition to the face-to-face workshops, participants will also engage in accompanying online activities in their own time (two hours per week). 

The workshop series will culminate in a showcase event on 1 May, by which time participants will have completed a Programme Institution Questionnaire in readiness for developing a CPD or short course.

The course is run by Ros Duhs from the Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT) and Vicki Dale and Clive Young from E-Learning Environments (ELE).
