On behalf of Blackboard, a partner of PCG Academia, we are pleased to invite you to participate in a free conference devoted to teaching with a use of the latest solutions from the Ed Tech sector.

The conference will be held on May 25-27 from 9am to 1pm (BST)/10am to 2pm (CEST) as a series of virtual meetings. At each session, the representatives of universities from Europe will share their experiences with the use of modern tools in distance learning in the era of a pandemic and the good practices they have developed. The conference will be conducted in English.

The conference agenda includes Richard Walker from the University of York, who will talk about the methodological changes introduced using the remote collaboration tool in response to the pandemic. Kate Molloy and Jane Ennis will talk about introducing the principles of Universal Design and increasing the accessibility of teaching content at NUI Galway. The representatives of the University of Derby, Claire Gardener and Charlie Foster Phillips, will present the project implemented at their university – a Virtual Induction, hosted in Blackboard, to introduce new students to the university life and to welcome returning ones.

The agenda also includes a panel discussion on the use of data and analytics in teaching to support students in achieving their intended learning outcomes. The next panel session will be devoted to experiences and best practices in the field of remote examination.

A keynote speech will be given by Helen Sharman – the first British astronaut to spend eight days at the Mir space station.
