Academy Showcase

The Academy Showcase is where staff share good practice in e-learning among staff from Aberystwyth, Bangor and other Higher Education institutions. Every year we run two sessions with two presentations each, one from Aberystwyth and one from Bangor. Anybody can join Academy Showcase using the below link.

We look forward this year’s presentations and hope you will join us.
