Do you have external students in your unit? Do you think that your unit could be better designed for these students? Then why not make some time in early July on Monday 3rd of July and Wednesday 5th July to attend a two-part workshop on Designing and facilitating a unit for external students.

In the workshops, we will look at how you can design and facilitate for engagement of your external students. The workshops will be practical, whereby you will be asked to develop learning designs, use online tools that you may not be aware of so that you can implement these ideas into your own units. The workshop facilitators have a range of expertise and knowledge that will ensure that you will have a rich and rewarding learning experience. Why not join us. You can attend both or choose one, it’s up to you.

You can book your place by going to these links: Designing and facilitating for external students (Workshop 1) and Designing and facilitating for external students (Workshop 2).
