The Learning and Teaching Centre is here to help with teaching in Session 3. Here are a few set-up reminders and some ways we can assist. Remember you can come along to the iLearn Drop-in Clinic for help with all things iLearn!
Ho ho ho and Christmas cheer, the end (of the year) is almost here!
The Christmas season is soon upon us. Please be aware of

While most of us are looking forward to slowing down towards the end of the year, some are going intensive. Here are a couple of events and some resources for Session 3.
Changes in technology, student expectations and economic pressures mean that we face challenges in the ways in which we organise and offer curricula. One of the alternative ways in which teaching and learning can be organised is through delivering in a compressed time frame.
Teaching successfully in a shortened time poses different challenges from delivering units in traditional semester time frames. The Session 3 Project being undertaken in the LTC is investigating the challenges and opportunities of compressed teaching. The project aims to provide resources which will help those designing and delivering units in compressed mode. There are some exciting innovations around the university. Some of these are through providing students with the opportunity to expand their experiences of learning through the new challenges that become possible when face to face and online learning are combined.
A series of workshops is being offered in September, a Roundtable has been organised for Learning and Teaching Week and we will continue to add to the resources that are available on the Session 3 Web page.
