Digitally enhanced education webinars
The University of Kent run a very well attended webinar series (Debbie and I presented to 1,100 online participants!) about the work we all did ‘moving learning online’ in a hurry. We were joined by some inspirational speakers talking about a whole range of’ ‘digi’ topics. For us, a great resource to share from the morning were the resources developed by Teresa Bird for University of Leicester Medical School, she showcased great examples, and highlighted their youtube channel which is free to access.

In an institution where we place a huge value on our ‘campus premium’, over the last few years a huge investment has been made in new buildings, changing our teaching spaces and creating buzz and excitement. We didn’t even get into our new building before pandemic significantly impacted on a team of Nursing Academics, who pride themselves on their face-to-face delivery. Taking their humanising curriculum (Todres et al 2009) and supporting the fast transition to online, we will share how our ‘Corona Virus Teachinar‘ approach and resources offered that step-change at a time when our nursing students were required to support the NHS and go into practice.
