Online distance learning events

Booking: these courses generally open for booking one month in advance of the shown date. If you do not see a live booking link please check back nearer the course date.

Cancelling: If you need to cancel your booking, please do so at your earliest opportunity and at least 3 days before the event. Someone else may be able to take your place, but we need time to contact them. Also, although you are not charged for an event, there are costs we incur (e.g. photocopying) which relate directly to places reserved.

How to cancel: you can cancel your booking via the MyEd Event Booking Channel. Go to MyEd and then the Event Booking Channel. Click on "My Bookings" - here you will have the option to cancel your place.

We maintain attendance registers; unexpected absences will be noted. If you consistently fail to attend, or repeatedly cancel with very short notice, you may be prevented from booking future IAD events.

Online Learning Network: Assessing students in an online environment


The Online Learning Network is a community of practice which offers those involved in delivering and supporting Online and Distance Learning programmes an opportunity to network and share practice.

The next event will focus on assessing students in an online environment and we will be joined by three guest speakers who will talk about their experience of online assessment and discuss the possibilities when assessing those studying by online and distance learning.
