Online Event

ULIP, Goldsmiths and the Centre for Distance Education present ‘Experiences in digital learning’, a series of monthly webinars aimed at fostering discussions among professionals in academia all along a very special post-COVID-19 academic year. Check our Events section for our next webinar.

2020 has been a tumultuous year for higher education (as it has been for all areas of life). Huge changes in the use of learning technology and large-scale adoption of online learning that would have taken years if not decades in ordinary times have happened in a matter of weeks. In this latest in our joint CDE, Goldsmiths, University of London Institute in Paris series of webinars, Experiences in Digital Learning, we shall be reflecting reflect on this experience from three different perspectives.

Chaired by Linda Amrane-Cooper, this webinar will reflect on the 2020 Higher Education online experience from three complimentary perspectives: an academic leading the shift to online (Simon Katan, Goldsmiths), a consultant supporting universities in online learning (Whitney Kilgore, iDesign) and a long term online educator (Marco Gillies, Centre for Distance Education and Goldsmiths). The discussion will reflect on what has happened since March 2020. It will also discuss our current situation and what we need to do now to both evaluate and continue our online learning, including addressing issues of equity and student engagement. Finally, we will think about the future, and in particular what this radical change means for HE after COVID-19.
