Esther Barrett a subject specialist in Digital Practice Jisc recently hosted a Virtual Bridge Session talking about how you make your online sessions interactive and engaging.
This session gives some quick tips and timely reminders to make sure the audience not only stays awake, but feels positively enthused by your online sessions. With the massive increase in remote teaching, and pressure of time in preparation, this session will help you deliver in a way which leaves everyone feeling good!

The Virtual Bridge Sessions have been recorded and are on the College development Networks YouTube channel.
