Academic Development SIG Virtual Cafe Chat

The Academic Development SIG will host another first Virtual Café Chat on Friday June 12, at 3pm New Zealand time (1pm Australian Eastern). The topic will be on “Lessons learned from the COVID-19 response”. It will be an opportunity to share and learn about things that went well, and didn’t go so well, in the academic development and e-learning response in shifting teaching online in response to COVID-19, and how institutions can integrate these lessons into teaching business-as-usual.
