Webinar: Improving the Work of Teaching – More Efficient and Sustainable Teaching 

Description of Webinar

As teaching staff, we can often feel overwhelmed by our workload, so it is imperative that not to waste time and effort. But where does one start? And what does one do? The webinar will answer five questions: 1. How do I know what to concentrate my efforts on? 2. How can I really make an impact on student learning? 3. Where can I make efficiency gains in my teaching? 4. What value can I add? 5. How can I make the workload more manageable without compromising on quality?

This webinar will be recorded and afterwards made available via the EDLAB website (
