Informal lunchtime sessions supporting online teaching, primarily led by academic staff, and centrally supported by the Centre for Educational Enhancement and Development, are taking place every second Thursday throughout this coming semester.
The theme of the next session, happening this Thursday, October 1st, from 1-2pm, is:
Handwriting online: from mathematics to ancient and modern languages. It will be led by Dr. Tugce Cuhadaroglu from the School of Economics and Finance.
We will be drawing together recent experiences of academic staff to figure out how to deal with live handwriting online in (1) the most time-efficient manner possible and (2) the least expensive (technology-wise) manner possible that minimizes, for example, the number of cameras/ipads involved.
You can join the session this Thursday October 1st at 1pm using this Microsoft Teams link: https://bit.ly/3hyH2MU
Format of the Lunchtime Sessions: A 10-minute presentation, normally by a member of academic staff, followed by a relaxed, informal, and constructive round table discussion where we share our knowledge and ask questions on the session's theme.
The lunchtime sessions for online teaching are open to everyone involved in teaching across the University (including PhD students) and aim to coordinate and provide as much peer-led support as possible. Their format and themes are flexible to suit the dynamic environment in which we find ourselves.
The series is part of the'Live from the Hive' series and will take place in the 'Live from the Hive' Teams channel.
