Scientia Education Experience: Being digital
Dr May Lim and Dr Peter Neal, two academics from UNSW Engineering, share candid stories about how they adapt, preserve and survive the shift to remote delivery in response to the coronavirus.
They will share tips and tricks they have used to move lectures, tutorials and assessments online, including what had helped, what to avoid, what was unexpected.
They will also talk about where there may be opportunities to enhance the students’ online experience by tying it to their sense of community and connection to UNSW.
