A new webinar with amazing Lindsay Clanfield (if the bulletin is likely to reach the members after this date- please discard this bit.)
Our webinar manager Lucy Pereira will be hosting a free webinar with Lindsay Clandfield on Saturday 19 January at 2pm GMT. The session will focus on topics related to online education in teacher education as teacher trainers are increasingly being asked to create forum tasks, modules, webinars and other online activities as a key part of their work. Lindsay will take us through some principles and practical ideas in task design for online teacher education. Save the date, and sign up as a guest at Join the live event
