PSAI Teaching and Learning Group webinar: “Teaching politics during the pandemic: experiences, opportunities and challenges” Friday 29th January 10am-



As many of us prepare to enter a third semester of teaching online we are well placed to reflect on and learn from our different experiences, first pivoting to online in March 2020 and from September to December 2020 delivering full modules online, often to large classes including to new first year students we have yet to meet in person. This online space offers some time out of module preparation to share our experiences and to learn from each other. Mindful of the diversity of our students the event includes a specific focus of the challenge of trying to engage in inclusive teaching in an online context, while practical examples of teaching practice are offered to ground our discussion and to enable each other develop teaching in this challenging environment. Nothing is needed but your time and your willingness to participate.

Register on Eventbrite by January 26th.
