The eLearning Team is setting up a series of virtual 1-to-1 consultation sessions for academic staff. The short 15 minute "virtual pitstop" sessions will be conducted via Zoom.
These consultations are an opportunity for FSE staff to learn about the technologies available for delivering the new blended learning format, test out their online content, or just ask questions. The 15 minute slots are designed to be the first point of contact - if your query or issue needs further investigation or resources, we will discuss a plan for how to progress during the consultation. The session can also be used to cover other eLearning topics, such as how to use lecture capture, discussion forums, or Turnitin.
