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.

In the second year of the Theme, the University is developing and piloting interventions to examine and test the transition framework developed in year one. This will be done using the interventions and developed through the online course development projects being undertaken at the Glasgow.  In addition to exploring collaboration with other institutions in Scotland, the University has also been approached by colleagues at The University of Notre Dame, Australia who are part of a project looking at transitions to blended learning. 

The institutional lead is Kerr Gardner.
