#LTHEChat 201 Enabling staff and students to thrive in large-scale pedagogic transformation in Higher Education

Enabling staff and students to thrive in large-scale pedagogic transformation in #HigherEd with guest host Professor Ale Armellini @alejandroa 

This #LTHEChat will address participants’ experiences of institutional change in universities, with a focus on pedagogic transformation. Whatever your role, you will be invited to reflect and share ideas on whether and how positive change can happen in universities, how buy-in can be generated and how we can assess impact on students. Barriers and blockages, with their rationale, will also be part of the conversation, as will the role of staff development, among other key topics. The post-Covid pedagogic future in HE will also be discussed. Join us on 24 March at 8pm GMT for another lively #LTHEChat.
