Building our learning community

Welcome to the second day of our Induction Week!

Part of the challenge of teaching and learning online is that we have to be creative in how we build a sense of community, common purpose and trust on this programme. In order for us to have critical and wide ranging debates about social justice, we need to be assured that our colleagues are arguing in good faith and in constructive ways.

We build our community by being present, visible and active in our programme¬†spaces. For induction, we’ve asked you to take part in three discrete activities in order for us to get to know each other and start to build mutual trust and respect. So, as soon as you can, please upload your photos to padlet, get stuck in with the wiki and introduce yourself on the discussion forum here.

If you missed the Welcome session last night, not to worry, the session is available to stream here.

Also, don’t forget to download and read our Programme and Technologies Handbooks to help orientate you to the programme and our various learning environments.
