Flexible Learning online course

All staff can access an online course Flexible Learning 2020 on Canvas. 

Course sections

The course is divided into sections each dealing with a specific aspect of flexible learning, relating to the delivery of the Education Resilience Framework

You can work through the relevant sections individually, or with the colleagues you teach with whether on a single module/course or across a year, or as a programme team. The course will help you consider next academic year at these different levels. 

Time needed

We have given a rough indication of of the time needed to work through each section - this includes time to complete the suggested activities and explore resources of interest

We suggest starting with the first three sections before looking at additional sections that are relevant to your teaching.  There is no need to do a section in one sitting, you can dip in and out as time allows.
