About the webinar

After reflecting on the pedagogic underpinnings of the project, the webinar will explore the practicalities of developing and delivering a virtual multination fieldtrip. The focus will be on UWE’s Virtual International Property Week, 2021 (IPW). Via MS Teams students from Antwerp, Aschaffenburg, Bristol and Rotterdam worked collaboratively to solve a property-based problem. This provided a platform to facilitate collaborative learning and learner engagement.

The webinar will share lessons learnt and will offer pointers to attendees who may be developing similar interactive projects. It will be of particular interest to colleagues with students on distant learning programmes, as well as those responding to the challenges posed by teaching and learning during the pandemic. There will be an opportunity for questions/discussion.
