Informatics Teaching Festival

The Informatics Teaching Festival is a series of events aimed at addressing some of the issues raised by moving much of our learning and teaching online in September 2020.

The sessions will run in Collaborate and the link is the same – no matter which event(s) you wish to attend. An email will be sent to all Informatics staff nearer the time with the Guest link.
