myUCA Masterclass


Ever wondered whether there might be more to myUCA? Then join us for the myUCA Masterclass.

It’s a short online course that’s designed to fit around your busy schedule. The course runs over eight days, and each day covers s different way of enhancing student learning in myUCA.

The course is delivered via short, webinar-based sessions, which you can either join in real-time or watch later on in the day. You can also dip in and out, so if you think you’re already a blogging whizz (for example) then just skip that session. There will also be a TodaysMeet chat room open throughout the duration of the course so you can post questions and suggestions.
