British Council Higher Education Dialogues Series: How can universities support their academic staff?
As part of our #AtHome with the British Council programme, we are organising a series of Higher Education dialogues which will help you connect with colleagues from around the world and share your experience.
This week we are discussing ‘How can universities support their academic staff?’ The swift move to online teaching revealed skills gaps of the teachers. More so, than ever before Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for academic staff must remain a focus of universities since it will not only enable them to rise to the current challenge but also prepare them for the future. Join us in this session where we will explore guidance of online professional development of academic staff, tools and resources in the current climate to support them including time management and wellbeing.
Covid-19 has had a significant impact on universities across the world. Higher Education institutions had to respond to the pandemic very quickly. During this session we will bring together sector experts to discuss supporting academic staff.
