What do you think?

If you have listened to any (or all) of these interviews / discussions we would love to hear about what you think.

The main reason for this project is to enable academics to discuss the thinking behind their course design and how this develops and becomes interwoven into digital spaces. To explore and reflect on this journey and how it then informs future iterations.

We are really interested in how listening to others’ stories has informed your own teaching and learning – and are keen on your views on how this project could be further developed.

Many thanks!
