Building student learning communities: online seminar

As part of the Focus On Collaborative Provision project, we are offering a number of online seminars sharing practice from Scotland on developing learning communities at a distance. These seminars were also presented the Making it work: Building learning communities at a distance event on Thursday 19 May. 

There will be two short presentations lasting 10 minutes with opportunities for questions. The seminars will be hosted on Blackboard Collaborate and full instructions are available for those who wish to take part.

This second seminar will be held at 10.00 BST on 16th June 2016 and last for one hour. We have chosen this time as it coincides with lunchtime in the Middle East, late afternoon in the Far East and early evening in Australia
