FW: November Teaching and Learning Conversation (TLC) - Free Webinar


Dear colleagues,

Our next Teaching and Learning Conversation will explore the value of “In between spaces for learning” and their role in developing a sense of belonging.

Facilitating the conversation on Thursday 26th November 12:30-13:30 (BST) are Andrew Middleton (Sheffield Hallam University) and Kathrine Jensen (University of Huddersfield)

This interactive webinar we will reflect upon the experience of the learner and the academic in higher education and invite you to consider what in-between spaces (e.g. spaces that are outside pre-defined boundaries of the classroom and VLE) are and how you or your students experience them. Together we will come up with examples of in-between spaces and discuss their characteristics, benefits and importance to developing a sense of belonging.
