LITEbox, a University-wide initiative exploring new and existing learning technologies generously supported by the Alumni Fund, starts the new academic year with an exciting 5 x 5 lunchtime event for all staff interested in gaining quick insight into some useful tools and technologies to support learning and teaching.
You can register now for this event taking place on Wednesday 19 October 2016 at 1.15pm, Chancellors’ Building 4.16.
Talking about LITEbox in the context of his recent appointment as Academic Director for the University’s new Centre for Learning & Teaching, Professor Andrew Heath said:
“The LITEbox initiative has started to build a cross-University community of practice that we can now build on to continue developing our capability to exploit new and existing technologies to enhance our learning and teaching. I would encourage staff to attend LITEbox events as they provide an excellent opportunity to learn about how to use technology in teaching and share examples of innovation and experience."
Hosted by LITEbox Project Leader and University’s AV Service Manager, Rob Hyde, this session will comprise five colleagues from academic departments and the Library - Dr James Betts, Reader, Dept. for Health, Dr Momna Hejmadi, Senior Teaching Fellow, Dept. of Biology & Biochemistry, Dr Carmelo Herdes Moreno, Lecturer, Dept. of Chemical Engineering, Dr Mirella Di Lorenzo, Lecturer, Dept. of Chemical Engineering and Mr David Stacey, Faculty Librarian for Engineering & Design with Ms Lis Wallace, Information Librarian, Library. Each speaker will be giving a five-minute presentation on their experience of using a range of different technological tools, including:
• Using Apps for student feedback;
• Benefits and challenges of using Moodle for online assessments;
• Presentational tools for enhancing learning and teaching.
Each presentation will include time for questions and further discussion. The LITEbox team hopes you will be able to join them for this exciting event.
