Teaching and Learning Reimagined – new event

Rather than a full Teaching and Learning Week this year, ITaLI will be hosting Teaching and Learning Reimagined on 2–4 November. In this series of online events addressed to the UQ teaching community, we will reflect on the challenges and achievements throughout 2020 and what T&L changes can be retained, or improved upon.
