Webinar: Setting the path to student online communities in COVID-19

The OneHE Information, Digital and Media Literacy Mindsets online community (led by Dr Konstantina Martzoukou) has moved on to the new OneHE platform (for those in higher/further education), which has some free access (including Mindsets) as well as subscription options. To join that, go to and follow 'register for the beta' by clicking the ‘Beta – Sign Up’ option in the menu.
The first Mindsets event under this new regime will be free on Zoom and is Setting the path to student online communities in COVID-19 with emphasis on the student voice on 25 February 2021 at 3-4pm UK time (GMT). "This live session aims to explore the concept of online learning communities from a student perspective, focusing on the sudden shift to an online learning reality caused by COVID-19 restrictions. The session will follow the format of a 'fireside chat' with a panel of students exploring opportunities, challenges and approaches to connecting online, with a focal point on the students' voice." It will address questions such as "What key digital and media literacies do you require to effectively learn online in the current environment? How can we address any digital inequalities on the basis of these skills? How can students co-learn effectively in the online environment? Does online teamworking work? Is the lecture approach dead or alive and thriving in the online learning environment? Does the idea of virtual placements or projects work for you? What are the challenges and the opportunities?"
