Brightspace Lessons content experience workshops

Brightspace units for 2023/24 became available to staff on 6th July. Students will have access to units for Semester 1/2/3 one week prior to the start of Semester 1, for the majority of programmes this will be 11th September. For the coming academic year we are moving to the Lessons (v1) content layout for all new units, to provide a consistent and improved experience for students across their units. FLIE will be running some online workshops at the beginning of September to introduce the basics of using the Lessons format and to support staff with building their units in this new content experience. So if you’ve never used Lessons before or just want to brush up on your knowledge, join us on the dates and times below.

All sessions will run online via Zoom. There’s no need to sign up, simply click on the link in the table or access via the Workshops and Drop-ins pages:
