About the network

The Online Learning Network is a community of practice with a remit to support the online learning community. This community includes those involved in supporting or teaching on existing online learning courses or programmes, as well as those considering developing new course or programmes.  

The network meets face to face once per semester and there may be additional online events and webinars.

Notification and updates about the network will be communicated via a mailing list.

The Online Learning Network is convened by Celeste McLaughlin, Head of Academic Development for Digital Education (IAD),  in collaboration with colleagues from Educational Design and Engagement
