Thursday, 4th February, 15.00-16.00, Collaborate Ultra.
The February 4th Digital Pedagogy Reading Group will focus on the materiality of online learning and challenge some of our assumptions around distance learning and virtual presence.
Read the journal article in advance and join LCC colleagues online on Thursday, 4th of February to discuss.
The reading asks us to re-evaluate our assumptions about virtual presence and the materiality of digital learning. It also presents an opportunity to rethink the physical and virtual campus as well as our distance and blended learning practices.
