Interest in distance learning continues to grow across UCL and an increasing number of distance-learning courses are either ongoing or in active development. There have also been similar developments in the field of CPD and short courses. 

Attendees at the final Distance Learning Forum of the current academic year will be able to find out more about what's happening across the institution in this area and hear from colleagues engaged in distance learning and/or CPD-related activities. 

The event will include the following:

If you would like to speak in the 'from the ground' section, or at an event in the 2013-14 Forums, please get in contact with E-Learning Environments (
