Getting Creative in Learning and Teaching at a Time of Crisis

Friday, 19 June 2020

The purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity to discuss innovative and creative learning and teaching approaches relevant to the current times we are all living, working and learning in – the Covid-19 pandemic. The event will feature two expert speakers, Professor Alison James and Dr Chrissi Nerantzi, each of whom will provide short papers, and these will be followed with a question and answer (Q&A) session. Delegates will leave invigorated and armed with some new ideas relevant to the learning and teaching they will be undertaking ‘at distance’ in their roles. The session will be facilitated by Dr Patrick Baughan, Dr Karen Gravett and Dr Namrata Rao, the conveners for this network, and managed by colleagues at SRHE.

Guest Paper 2.  Is adversity the real mother of invention? Dr Chrissi Nerantzi
