Digital support has come into its own over the last four weeks. I am certain we won’t hear, ‘what does learning technology do ‘ from any quarter again.

Initial efforts focused on getting as many staff and students as possible communicating with each other . This involved making sure

  • Staff knew how to use Enquirer to contact students.
  • Staff could create and position forums in moodle courses to communicate and collaborate with learners.
  • Everyone knew how to use Zoom meeting , safely and securely to run classes.
  • For those with access showing staff best ways to use and hold secure meetings over Microsoft Teams.

Over the next few weeks we will move through more training around the tools that will help us tidy up any outstanding assessment and then we will focus on teaching about learning design so we can offer learners a compelling on line experience and moving on the aims of the Learning and Teaching Academy.


Welcome !

This is the first post in what will become a spot for staff across City of Glasgow College to share their reflections on learning and teaching practice. We are a large two campus city centre based college with 30,000 learners and 1400 teaching and support staff.view of students in entering  main building

In a fast moving environment our WordPress platform will support the developments across the College.

The Learning and Teaching Academy supports a range of activities across the College with overall aim transforming our approaches to learning and teaching.

The Academy seeks to identify key areas where colleagues engage in simple clear and effective uses of innovative pedagogy. At the Learning and Teaching Academy, we believe our approach will create time for staff to teach and learn differently.  At the heart of this is a belief that sharing and collaborating is at the heart of good learning.
