EVENT - Engaging with the increase in contact hours: effective virtual learning/teaching in the Arts and Humanities

University of the West of England, St Mattias Campus, Bristol
7 March 2012

This workshop, one of the Higher Education Academy Discipline Workshop and Seminar Series, offers a space for staff involved in the running/establishing of virtual learning to discuss their concerns and to share best practice. How can we ensure that virtual learning is pedagogically valuable, rather than merely offering a cost effective method of filling hours on timetables?

The workshop will consider two things:
  1. The differing ways in which academics have offered effective virtual teaching across the sector, including how this effectiveness could be measured.
  2. An analysis of the ways in which students have become effective virtual learners, again taking into consideration how this can judged.
