Coffee Courses

Coffee courses are an easy way to learn new ideas for using technology in your teaching. Each coffee course will cover a new topic in education technology, teaching online, digital tools, pedagogy, or trends in technology. It is equivalent to a one- or two-hour face-to-face training session, but is done at your own pace from your own desk. Coffee courses are run through our dedicated ANU Coffee Courses blog.


Stay tuned, new Coffee Courses coming soon!
