PRIA Research Community (ResCom) session

One of the outcomes of Covid-19 was the shift to online teaching for our education community and online learning for practitioners of the future. What did we learn and what were the silver linings of this shift?

This session will look at best practice in online learning, how to make the most of both synchronous and asynchronous learning and practical ways educators can build online communities for face to face, online and work integrated learning.

Presented by The PRIA Research Community Program (ResComm), join the conversation and hear from Curtin University’s Bridget Tombleson about her research on the top tips for synchronous and asynchronous learning.
