Welcome to Session 20/21

City of Glasgow College is adopting a digital first approach for Academic Year 20/21. The Learning & Teaching Academy have developed a webinar and workshop programme that is aligned to professional standards for teaching and support staff, and informed by data from staff and student surveys. 

We encourage all curriculum teams to book an ABC learning design workshop   as a team, to gain expertise in course design and delivery.  This allows teams to review their Moodle course, and content to ensure that it is designed following the College standard, and make the most of all of the tools and support available to learners. We also ask colleagues to take advantage of the Academy Webinar series starting on 17th August. 

Remember that support is always available on 1:1 and for Curriculum Teams from your Faculty assigned Learning Technologist and the Learning Technologies Helpdesk.’ And the Library Helpdesk 

Last week we launched OpenLearn.cityofglasgowcollege.ac.uk a new pre full induction course for prospective learners. You can set up an account and view your own curriculum area. This is thanks to a big cross-College team effort over the summer period.

On the 14th of August our refreshed MyCity Moodle will be available for all teachers and learners. Make sure your courses in Moodle are allocated to correct curriculum area, and remember we refresh Moodle over the summer. If you did some updates after end of June you will need to move them across on to the new system, support is available online and from the Learning Technologies Team.
