You are invited to the second University of London Centre for Distance Education webinar, designed to support the move to online during the pandemic. It is taking place on Tuesday 23rd June, 11.30-12.30
The quality of the student experience in online learning is of critical importance. How well does our management of quality in learning and teaching in campus-based programmes transfer into the online mode? What new concepts and practices do we need to develop to ensure our students learn effectively and engage fully with their programmes of study as we move into our autumn terms?
The webinar will be led by two CDE fellows, J Simon Rofe, Academic Head of Digital Learning at SOAS University of London and Jonathan San Diego, Lecturer in Technology & Health Informatics Education and Director of the iTEL Hub at Kings College, London and by Diana Laurillard, Professor of Learning with Digital Technologies, UCL Knowledge Lab.
More details are available on the CDE Events Page.
There is no need to register, but please note the date and time for your diary. The webinar will be open to all who wish to participate. We will send the webinar link and joining instructions a couple of days prior to the event.

International Student Mental Health: Online Events 9-11 June 2020
Next week, 9-11 June 2020, UKCISA are running a series of online sessions on International Student Mental Health including a session by Dr Heather Gray and Dr Shiv Shanmugam from Glasgow Caledonian University who will present on research that they have carried out in Scotland on student mental wellbeing and the curriculum. This is of interest to all staff supporting international students through their studies in the UK, and particularly useful for staff who wish to consider how best to adapt academic programmes (face to face and online during the Covid-19 Crisis) to ensure positive student mental wellbeing.
Events run over the three days and include:
· an outline of the Student Minds Mental Health Charter, recently updated to address Covid-19,
· a lively panel discussion including the OfS and the OfS Challenge Project on International Student Mental Health,
· a session for FE staff
· an in-depth interview with an international student studying Global Mental Health who has great advice for institutions on how to engage international students from different cultures with mental health support.
For full details and to book to attend, go to the UKCISA website
We recently also ran a session on supporting PhD students and supervisors' mental health (a research project with Sheffield University, Glasgow University, Heriot Watt and Glasgow Caledonian) which you can watch on our website (just create a log in if you haven't used the members area of the UKCISA website before) .
