  2. 2. Challenges and BIG questions • What are we doing to help new students transition to online learning for September, and to support new and continuing students beyond initial induction? • How are we repositioning pedagogic practices and the curriculum beyond mode of delivery? • Are we doing enough to re-think time and space(s) for learning with respect to learners’ individual capacity to engage in formal learning activities, timetabling of courses, the technologies learners have at their disposal, and ensuring an equitable learning experience for all? • How are we considering the relationship between the home, digital and campus environments in relation to online learning and the hybrid models of learning and teaching we will more towards? • How can we support our learning communities (within programmes of study and the university) to ensure a ‘sense of belonging’ within the context of online and socially distanced learning and teaching?
