During the summer term, there will be a series of events designed to raise awareness and help you think about how you might use technology to enhance your teaching and the student experience.
These will include opportunities to find out more about the Transformative Learning Spaces project or explore how the use of technology is part of the Student Experience Plan. You will also be able to attend workshops including using technology for assessment and feedback, using Lecture Capture and to reflect on how you might enhance your students’ digital literacy skills in the curriculum.
