Congratulations to David Warren, Head of Building Services Engineering, WINNER of the first BPEC Awards for Excellence for the Best Use of Technology in the Delivery of Plumbing Training.
David took the bold move to place cameras in the classroom for what he called 10:10 sessions. Ensuring social distancing, 10 students attended in the classroom, while 10 students attended remotely through Microsoft Teams. Sessions were recorded which meant that students were able to revisit or watch the lesson later if they were unable to access IT equipment.
"I feel very honoured to have won this BPEC award, and I feel that it has been a team effort and would like to thank my lecturing team for their support and drive they gave this project of online delivery through Teams and Google Classroom and the success it has received with positive comments both from students and the wider Further Education community," David said. "Its success has allowed us to maintain a hybrid of online this year and moving forward."
