LTAG Monitoring: January 2015

The following is an extract from the monitoring report we present to UCS's Learning, Teaching and Assessment Group

Strategic Priority: 1: To fully embed the use of technology enhanced learning (TEL) in teaching, learning and assessment practices

It is proposed that this will continue in three key ways:
  • At the course team level to work more proactively with course teams through team developments in order to explore and deploy technology enhanced learning opportunities within teaching, learning and assessment models. In particular, working closely with course team validation and approval processes
  • At the individual level, expand our offering to staff and students for just in time support and development around innovative uses of TEL. In particular, the expansion of the Elevate Team led UCS digital literacy programme
  • On media literacies to expand our offering of audio-visual services to staff wishing to effectively incorporate multimedia within their teaching activities/materials.
