Learning & Teaching Drop-in Sessions

Drop ins are an opportunity to speak with a learning & teaching advisor about an issue you may be having.

They can be used for a variety of topics and issues. Examples include:

  • Exploring what platform to use for an online assignment
  • Troubleshooting an issue with Canvas
  • General interest in a particular tool and discussing if it would be appropriate for your requirements


  • Monday 11:00 – 12:00
  • Wednesday 9:00 – 10:00
  • Friday 15:00 – 16:00

Upon joining via Zoom you will be greeted by one or two advisors. Breakout rooms will be used if we are already discussing another colleague’s issue. This means that you will be able to speak to someone one-to-one.

If a specialist is not able to assist with your learning & teaching query, we will either invite another colleague into the call or collect details and get back to you with a solution at a later point.

For detailed log-in and access information please refer to our joining instructions.
