University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow will be uniquely focusing on transitions involving technology as it will aim to support transitions from a campus face-to-face experience to a blended online learning environment.

To support this work, a Research Assistant will be recruited to undertake a literature review, consult with staff, students and other stakeholders and work with the Institutional Team to identify good practice and develop a framework to guide and support transitions into online learning.  Interventions to support these transitions will also be developed and piloted during the work of the theme.

The institutional lead is Kerr Gardner.
