Creative Academic Magazine CAM #19 Creative Ed-ventures in Online Teaching and Learning Dear community member The latest issue of Creative Academic Magazine (CAM19) is now available as a free download at https://www.creativeacademic.uk/magazine.html . It is often said that necessity is the mother of invention and the Covid pandemic has certainly created a new necessity for invention and adaptation in the world of education. In CAM 19, edited by Johanna Payton and Lisa Clughen, we celebrate the imaginations, resourcefulness and ingenuity of teachers and others who support students and their learning, in creating new opportunities for creative adventures in learning. The magazine is our contribution to World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15 -21. We will also facilitate a discussion on the theme of Creative Ed-ventures in Online Teaching and Learning starting on April 14th in the #creativeHE Facebook Forum https://www.facebook.com/groups/creativeHE Please

We also have all the usual stuff from HR but nothing specifically about teaching.   Does anyone know of anything useful I could point her towards?
