The session is primarily aimed at leaders and managers within the FE and Skills sector, but teachers will also find it useful.
In the session we intend to cover the following:
- Increasing digital user engagement among staff and meet the recommendations of the FELTAG Report
- Meeting students’ expectations of online learning and digital technology
- Supporting enhanced online communication and collaboration across the College and FE sector
The first 20 attendees will also win a copy of my new book.
This Webinar is a great opportunity to join in the conversation about digital literacy and online learning that is going on across the FE and Skills sector.
