The first LITEbox event of the new semester kicked off on 15 October with Professor Peter Lambert, the University's recently appointed Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Learning & Teaching), chairing a debate on the uses of new and existing technologies to a packed lecture theatre. A full recording of the session is available at the bottom of the page.
After a brief introduction from the Chair, each of the five panel members also gave a short introduction about themselves before moving on to the three main topics. The panel comprised:
- Dr John Troyer, Lecturer, Department for Policy & Social Sciences
- Dr Emma Rich, Reader, Department for Health, LITEbox Project Co-leader
- Professor Nick Kinnie, Associate Dean (Undergraduate Taught Students), School of Management
- Dr Kyriaki Anagnostopoulou, Head of e-Learning, Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office
- Dr Julie Letchford, Senior Teaching Fellow, Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology
Commenting on the event, Professor Lambert said:
"I very much enjoyed chairing such a well-attended and dynamic event, particularly with such a mixed audience of both academic and Professional Services staff from across the University. I am delighted that LITEbox, as an institution-wide initiative, is beginning to create a community of practice within which staff can share, learn and develop their experiences of new and existing technologies. This early discussion has provided some useful pointers for the development of the Education Strategy for 2016 and beyond."
