CDTL Calendar of Events

Semester 1 Academic Year 2020-2021

CDTL runs a range of seminars and workshops to support teaching and learning. Information on these sessions is arranged chronologically on this page. 

In light of the novel coronavirus pneumonia (Covid-19), CDTL has adjusted its regular line-up of seminar and workshop sessions and opened additional face-to-face workshops and online webinars to provide immediate support to colleagues looking to provide meaningful online teaching and learning experiences. Please refer to the page "Toolkit for E-learning" for the additional sessions.

You can also refer to the page "Teaching and Learning Continuity" by the Centre for Instructional Technology if you require further help in conducting your lectures and tutorials online.
