BNU Edskill Refresher Training

Refresher training for Edskill tutors and ALs at Buckinghamshire New University in preparation for a new age of teaching and learning practice.

This training was originally created in December 2021. If you ignore the references to Covid 19, then there is still a lot of value in the key principles of teaching delivery.

If you are interested in working towards your Fellowship of HEA, then this an interesting website to look at, and then contact Paula Han to discuss further.
