Community of Practice Meeting: April 03rd 2020 10 AM


Dear all,

We hope you all keeping safe. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 we have seen new developments in teaching and learning globally, specifically the adoption of online learning as an alternative. This meeting would therefore give us an opportunity to reflect and forge future strategies to ensure effectiveness in our roles throughout.

Please join us online next week to share experiences and ideas.

WHEN: Friday 03rd 2020


WHERE: Online, a link will be sent out to the responders in due time.

If you interested in being part of this discussion, use the link below.

Wishing you the best,

Lennie and Tebby
