Keep your ‘teaching active’ status up to date by joining colleagues in guided conversation on resources that open out the key concepts of ‘deep learning’, ‘blended learning’, and what the ‘new normal’ means.
Get to know the new-look ARK pages, reflect on the teaching year that was, and look ahead to rich and engaged classrooms in 2021.
Registrations are open for Academic Staff of the University of Divinity from 7-26 October. (update: Registrations are now closed)

Conference pack for participants
One of the aims of this conference is for participants to become familiar with using and experiencing ARK the way that a student would. As such, all conference material, including links to Zoom sessions, can be found on ARK in the 2020 Teaching Conference unit. Participants have been given access to this unit, and should now see it available from your ARK home page (found under “my units” in the Navigation panel of ARK).
