Educational Technology Workshops

The Educational Technology routine training programme is now available for term 1. The workshops in our offer are intended as basic introductions to key aspects of using technology to support teaching and learning. We have introductory sessions to technologies such as Moodle, Lecture Capture, and Poll Everywhere. Other sessions include DIY Video, Interpreting Turnitin Similarity Reports, Moodle assignments: Managing offline feedback and grading, and Managing online assessment using Turnitin.

Each session is also mapped to the relevant dimensions of the United Kingdom Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). We hope that drawing all the opportunities together in this way, and mapping to the UKPSF, will allow staff to plan their professional development for the term, and more easily evidence claims for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, which is based on this framework.
