Innovative Learning Week: Educational Design and Engagement Events

ILW: Dive In

Innovative Learning Week will be held at the University of Edinburgh from February 16th to 20th. The Educational Design and Engagement Team (formerly Learning Services) decided to have events aimed particularly at Staff since most of the events are for students (and rightly so!).

We thought it would be interesting to hold a few lunchtime webinars using the University supported virtual classroom tool Blackboard Collaborate.

Peer-reviewing Online

February 17th 13:00 to 14:00

This event is hosted by Robert Chmielewski and Stuart Nicol. It’s for those who are interested in inviting their students to review and comment on each other’s work online before or after it’s been submitted for assessment.
