UCL Connected Learning Live Events

This is part of a series of short live sessions to complement the UCL Connected Learning Essentials Staff Development Course. 

View all events in series. 

This short panel discussion will introduce how staff can approach field trips in 2020-21. Whilst field trips are an essential part of learning and connecting in many programmes, given the move to online teaching, and social distancing requirements, they will now become challenging if not prohibitive.

Mitigations due to Covid-19, combined with the Brexit transition period ending on 31 December 2020 (including its implications for visas), will mean field trips need careful planning and consideration, including different scenarios.

The discussion will be facilitated by Dr Brent Carnell, with guest speakers:

  • Dr Don Brown, The Bartlett Development Planning Unit
    Dr Andres Vicente, UCL Institute for Global Prosperity
  • Dr Bill Sillar, UCL Archaeology
  • Dr Sam Randalls, UCL Geography 

Who should attend

You should attend if you are a member of UCL staff who teaches.
