CPD: Webinar Series on Online Education

From Monday the 6th to Thursday the 9th of July, we will be hosting a series of webinars on the topic of online education.   Every day, for four days, we will offer a one-hour webinar open to all UM teaching staff, to help you best prepare for your education in the coming academic year.

Each session will start at 10am, with a presentation on the topic (see list below), and this will be followed up with questions from an expert panel.  During the last part of the webinar, participants will also have the opportunity to ask their questions to the speaker and panel.  These webinars will be recorded so that they can be made available online for those who cannot attend.

You can sign up for any, or all of the webinars on this page.  The hosting platform for the webinar series is Zoom (Zoom.us) and participation is free of charge.  You will receive a link to participate within 24 hours of the start each webinar and registration will remain open until the start of each session.

Please note that if you register within 24 hours of the webinar, you will receive a link at 9.30am ready for a 10am start.

Also note that it is not necessary to register separately to receive the webinar recordings.  These will be uploaded to the EDLAB website afterwards and an announcement will be made once these are available.
