Distance Learning Forum & Inaugural CPD and Short Courses Forum
Wednesday, 3 July 2013 from 15:00 to 17:00 (BST)
The third and final Distance Learning Forum of the 2012-13 year, offered in association with the inaugural CPD and Short Courses Forum.
Interest in distance learning continues to grow across the university and an increasing number of courses are either on-going or in active development. In conjunction with this are similar developments in the field of CPD and short courses.
Join us at this event to find out more about what's happening across the institution in these areas, hear from colleagues in your school and join us in the Forum. After talks and questions there will be a reception and networking opportunity to find out more and talk to colleagues.
