Online teaching: guidance, tips and platforms
Central support from Arena and Digital Education to help you prepare for teaching and learning in the next academic session.
In advance of next academic session we are now preparing for Connected Learning, our distinctive approach to online, socially distanced or blended teaching, learning support and assessment.
Connected Learning can take place online and face-to-face and supports rich, active and effective modes of learning as well as addressing the wider aspects of the student experience. At its heart is the principle that students are active participants in the learning process rather than passive recipients of information.
The focus is on the adaptation of existing modules for delivery in an alternative context and securing student engagement online, with the assumption that face-to-face lectures and large-class teaching will not take place in Term 1.
You can find out more about Connected Learning below, alongside top tips, case studies and toolkits to help you prepare your teaching materials.
