Needed Now in Teaching and Learning

  • What have we really learned from 2020’s lurch to online teaching?
  • Is industry-integrated learning just a nice phrase – and if not who is doing it well?
  • Beyond QILT scores, what do students really think about their learning and teaching experience?

Needed Now 2021 provides insights into learning and teaching that you won’t find anywhere else this year, in a convenient series of online webinars brought to you by Sally Kift, Campus Morning Mail, and Twig Marketing.

Each day during conference week we will bring information-intensive webinars facilitated by expert communicators, drawing insights from a panel of experts from across the higher education sector.
