We have a number of learning technologies which the University manages and maintains and we can also offer advice on tools available from the web. The Technology Enhanced Learning Team in the Centre for Learning and Teaching, provides support to staff, helping to develop effective use of technology to enhance learning, teaching and assessment. Its work is aligned to the University's Education Strategy.

Key Activities

Key areas of activity include:

  • supporting departments and individuals in (re)designing curricula in order to take account of the benefits offered by technology to enhance the student experience (including ‘flipping’ techniques)
  • providing advice and guidance on digital assessment and e-marking and e-feedback methods (including rubrics, statement banks, audio feedback, etc)
  • troubleshooting and providing ‘how to’ advice on the use of learning technologies
  • showcasing examples of technology-enhanced learning and teaching practices and facilitating networking and discussions to share best practice
  • leading pilot projects to evaluate the effectiveness of new learning technologies and integrations
  • running a dedicated support service for our range of learning environments/tools
  • supporting the development of learning technology bids for external funding
  • horizon scanning and advising on current and future national/international developments.
