Hello and welcome to the Third Issue of Saturday Scribblings. I would like to welcome those that have joined us in the past week. Thank you for your support.
I hope you have had a wonderful week so far. It has been quite busy tutoring students remotely but things are slowing down at one of the institutes where I work. There is an obvious reaction that has limited the amount of international students attending classes.
Perhaps there is an opportunity for universities and institutes to work in conjunction with foreign educational organisations to develop links and education for students unable to attend physical institutes. It will take time but I am confident that things will return to normalcy by 2022, but, as we all know, anything could happen.
Take care all and happy teaching!

Videos Worth Watching
In this issue, I share a recent video I watched about educational podcasting - something that I have been thinking about for a while now. Jack introduces why he started a podcast and proceeds to provide some important information about those that are seriously considering doing a podcast.

In the following video, Rod Ellis shares how using tasks could benefit teachers with their teaching. Check out this Cambridge organised video as it can be quite beneficial for teachers, especially within a remote environment.
