PDG Exchanges are a series of online short events designed by practitioners for practitioners on a range of current teaching, learning and assessment (TLA) topics. Each session unpacks a 'big' evidence-informed idea, models an online tool which can help bring the ideas alive for learners, and provides a safe solo/peer space for participants to test the tool and their thinking.

  • PDG Exchange - Developing learners' oracy via video - Using Flipgrid
