Delivering the Curriculum through VC (Video Conference)

Monday 4 February 2019

Event Details
Airthrey Castle
University of Stirling


Video conferencing is part of everyday life, and for many of our colleges, a regular part of curriculum delivery. With advances in VC and the new interactional tools, we can offer an educational experience for those who want to engage remotely that is on a par with face-to-face teaching, and increasingly mirroring practice in the workplace.

We are excited to team up with Ajenta, the team behind Vscene, to offer this dedicated workshop which focuses on making the most of VC interactions. The face-to-face workshop will guide you through the steps of designing and delivering online sessions via VC. You’ll also get the chance to experience the best of online delivery via a special lesson from e-Sgoil’s Mr Graham on ‘Percentages and profit’ – now maths might not be your favourite subject (just now), but Mr Graham will lead you through a lesson that brings home how the technology can be used to engage students in an online medium.

This free workshop is being run as part of Fire Starter Festival (28th Jan – 8th Feb) and is open to all with an interest in online delivery.
