What do you need?
The CLT can provide staff development and training to suit your needs, whether related to curriculum, session or assessment design, or learning technology training.
Listed below are some examples of the staff development opportunities we offer to staff on request. We are happy to tailor a session for a group of staff or department depending on their need. Our list is evolving so please check back regularly. In line with curriculum principles of taking a ‘course team approach’ to development, we strongly encourage teams to access training together.
If you require one-to-one support, please book a one-to-one session with the TEL team or email firstname.lastname@example.org (for technology enhanced learning queries) or email@example.com (for all other learning and teaching queries).
