Online sessions that work for you

We take a flexible approach to our online sessions and will work with you to find out what will work best for you and your students. We can run sessions using our Blackboard Collaborate virtual classroom system, or are happy to join a session using your preferred software. Our live sessions bring your students together and give them the chance to ask questions but we can also arrange for recorded versions of talks. We are here to support you with any technical, safeguarding or logistical concerns so please do get in touch if you have any questions.
