Welcome

Welcome to Teaching Complexity 

#teachcomUAL, a free online seminar series curated by Bonnie Stewart (Visiting Fellow, UAL) and David White (Head of Digital Learning, UAL) from the Teaching and Learning Exchange at the University of the Arts London.

Teaching Complexity

Through talks, discussion and other activities the seminars will explore how open and creative approaches to teaching and learning can help students navigate the complexity of higher education and the digital environment.

The seminars are designed for anyone in a teaching, teaching related or staff development role in higher education. Each seminar runs for approximately 1 hour with some time at the end for additional discussion.

There are also two ‘Digital Fieldwork’ sessions for those that want to take an experiential approach.

Feel free to attend all the seminars or pick and choose. All seminars will be in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.
