Visit from the University of Iceland

Earlier this week, we were delighted to host a team from the University of Iceland who were visiting Scotland as part of an Erasmus study visit.

The team of eight were were particularly interested in finding our more about GCUs approach to developing and delivering blended and online learning. They were also keen to find out more about the various routes GCUs CPD programme for learning and teaching offers staff.

Jim and myself gave an overview of our approaches to blended learning, and the GCU Learn environment. Alison Nimmo and Sam Ellis then shared their recent experiences of moving our PGcert in Learning and Teaching from a traditional face to face model to one offering a blended and full online option.

Over the course of the morning there was a great exchange of experience, knowledge and ideas.
