The Open University in Wales has developed a new range of free learning resources for school and college staff.
Working with the Cardiff Commitment Project, staff from The Open University Institute of Educational Technology (IET) have produced a series of webinars, which are hosted on the Welsh Government’s HWB platform.
Over the past year, schools and colleges across the country have been under enormous pressure and have dedicated huge amounts of time, effort, and resources to responding to the challenges of Coronavirus.
As they move into the recovery phase and in preparation for Wales’ new curriculum, the courses have been designed to help staff to further develop skills and approaches to blended teaching and learning pedagogy.
