Technology has had an enormous impact on the way we teach and the way we learn. In this new module, you will examine the the evolution of digital technologies and their impact in HE, investigate debates and evidence about the effects on teaching and learning, examines the digital tools which are used to support teaching, learning, research and administration and the developments might occur in the foreseeable future. It provides you with the opportunity to reflect critically on the issues raised by the increasing implementation of technology in HE both globally and within your own context and to explore what both digital literacies and open practice means in the context of your work.
