Maintaining L&T Continuity


Thank you to those who gave feedback on our Zoom training earlier this summer. In response to this, SALT’s ‘Zoom for Teaching’ sessions are now taking the form of more ‘hands-on’, online workshops, available to all Swansea University academic staff. Details of upcoming sessions can be found on our Events Page , which will be updated regularly as and when sessions are planned in relation to demand.

Due to the nature of the workshops, which allow for practice in managing breakout rooms, running polls etc., registration is limited to small groups of participants, with a waiting list when sessions become fully booked / in the event of a cancellation. Days and times of workshops will continue vary, in order to be as flexible as possible.

Recordings will remain of ‘Zoom – The Basics for Teaching’ and ‘Zoom – Advanced Tools for Teaching’ sessions on this page (see below).
