Win a £30 National Book Token
Each month we will ask a question relating to our digital resources, whether e-books or Virtual Learning Resources, and invite you to respond via Twitter. The winner, chosen at random, will receive a £30 National Book Token.
The question for November is:
“Reflecting on 2020, how have your opinions of online learning and digital content changed this year?”
Deadline: 30 November.
The winner will be announced in the December newsletter. Good luck!
The next webinar will be on Thursday 26 November from 2-3 pm. We will be asking members for feedback on various aspects of the e-books for FE support site in order to inform future changes, and also reflecting on your experience of the past term, in relation to digital resources and blended learning, to see what learning points might be shared.
