Event Description



At the next City Learning and Teaching exchange we are asking you, the students, to turn the tables on City academic staff and give them some lessons, tips and advice about what works best for you as students experiencing online learning. We want you to give a 10 minute presentation on one of the following areas: 


Have you had a great experience on part of your course – with good teaching practices you’d like other lecturers to adopt? Or do you have ideas or examples for how online teaching experiences could be more engaging? 

Do you prefer live lessons or time to learn at your own pace – what has worked well for you on your modules?  


What have your experiences of online assessment and exams been like – did they work well for you? Do you have examples of how they could be improved – or suggestions for alternative methods? 


How have you been supported by your lecturers and personal tutors with your wellbeing? What has made you feel better? What teaching strategies did staff adopt to lower your stress levels and improve your mental health? 

Social and community 

How have the staff on your course fostered a sense of community for you? How have you felt connected and engaged with your cohort? What activities have you enjoyed? 

We are looking for examples of good practice and innovative online experiences that you and your lecturers would be willing to talk about at an event aimed at academic staff at City. This is your opportunity to share good practice across the university and have a platform to let us know what works well. 

We would encourage this to be in partnership with your lecturers, or other academic related staff. Presentations should aim to be about 10 minutes long – with an additional 5 minutes for Q&As.
