​​​​EdTech Lounge

As COVID-19 disrupted on-campus teaching and learning, many faculty members started exploring ways to teach online. To support these faculty members, the Blended and Digital Learning Team at the Network of Quality, Teaching and Learning has started offering workshops and consultations to help f​​aculty members move to online teaching. At the same time, we know that faculty members can learn a lot from each other by sharing experiences and discussing new idea. Therefore, the EdTech Lounge was designed as a virtual space for AKU faculty members to discuss experiences of teaching and learning with technology. In the months of April and May 2020, the EdTech Lounge sessions will be held every Wednesdays from 3 pm to 3:40 pm Karachi; 1 pm to 1:40 pm East Africa; 11 am to 11:40 am UK via Zoom.

The format of each session is simple: after a round of introductions, the expert will speak for 15 minutes and afterwards, the session will be open for Q&A for 15 minutes. We will conclude with a summary of key ideas.
