Event Details

You're invited to the UCL Forum - 16th July!

We hope you can join us for an opportunity to hear on all things related to distance learning, CPD, short courses, life learning, MOOCs, Apps and everything else in this area. Colleagues will be sharing the latest technical developments, developmental thinking, course creation stories and champions encouraging or coordinating their areas of UCL. The aim of the Forum is to share and discover from one another as we venture into new or less-trodden paths. 

This year we hope to share with you a selection of the most interesting, novel and developmental parts of UCL which are active in this area. This is a great opportunity to meet people who share similar activities to you from across UCL, to network and discover recent developments.

The event will be split into two parts:

  1. Presentations & discussions
  2. Networking, demos & refreshments. 



Part one

Location: Gustav Tuck Lecture Theatre, Wilkins Building 14:00 – 17:00

Theme: Presentations and discussion, split into four themes: 

  1. What's happening now
  2. Horizon scanning
  3. Fully online courses - real experiences
  4. Developmental challenges

These four areas will contain two-three talks, each lasting 10 minutes from colleagues across the university. Each talk will offer plenty of time to submit and ask questions so you can hear about activities across UCL, learn from colleagues and question areas that need expansion.



Part two

Location: North Cloisters, North Cloisters 17:00 – 19:00-ish

Theme: Networking, hands-on demos and refreshments

Talking to colleagues can be the most powerful way to feel more informed, discover who is experimenting with new things and to be an active part of a community. We hope you’ll join us after the presentations and discussions for networking with like-minded people. We’ll be taking over the North Cloisters and will have a selection of refreshments, demos of UCLeXtend and the Life Learning website, colleagues to chat to/learn from and most importantly, yourself.
