Learning & Teaching Town Hall

Join us at the conclusion of the 2020 AGM for an informal, BYO drinks/nibbles session where we reflect on what it has been like to teach in 2020 from three different perspectives followed by debrief and discussion.

Title: Teaching production during 2020 – What will you take with you into 2021?

Synopsis: As we begin the process of wrapping the 2020 academic year, we invite you to an informal Friday afternoon session (BYO drinks and dips) where we ask three academics to reflect on what it has been like to teach production in 2020 and, to identify some of the good things they will take with them into the 2021 ‘new-COVID-normal’. Q&A and discussion to follow.

Running time: a TV hour

Call time: Friday 27 November 2020, immediately after the 2020 ASPERA AGM (approx. 5pm AEDT)
