When: Tuesday 22nd November 12:00-13:00 UK Time (60 minutes)

About this conversation:

1minuteCPD is an openly shared, staff development project designed and developed by colleagues from Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Manchester. Taking a head-on approach to the “no time” excuse for not engaging in staff development, 1minuteCPD has explored micro-learning as a method for developing digital capabilities in higher education.

This webinar is a chance to discuss the lessons learnt from 1minuteCPD, the merits and challenges of micro-learning for teaching and learning more widely, and explore what’s next on the 1minuteCPD journey.

If you are aware of any research papers in micro-learning, please feel free to share these during the webinar.

Kate and Chris are part of the wider 1minuteCPD team (See: Meet the authors). Both currently work at Manchester Metropolitan University as Technology Enhanced Learning Advisors. In their roles, they are responsible for the development of staff around learning technologies and exploring the pedagogical applications of technology within Higher Education.
