Flexible and Distance Learning Forum

A meeting for all staff involved in, or looking to develop, distance learning. The DL Forum is a regular event occuring on the last Tuesday of each month, which aims to spread information and best practice across the DL community, and provide a hub for discussion and dissemination of key issues.

Typically, the events will feature a presentation from a DL department on an aspect of their work; details of a central service which provides support for DL departments; visiting speakers; and news of any projects or changes which may affect departments. They also provide a space for colleagues to discuss current issues with each other in an informal environment.
