During September the Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team have provided support for staff to prepare for semester one. This blog post outlines the support TEL have offered, how to catch up if you've missed our communications, and upcoming plans to support staff.
Preparing for Semester One
As part of the APDaS Option pathway, TEL delivered a series of online workshops open to all staff to help them prepare for semester one. These were designed to cover the topics that commonly raise questions at this time of year, including What's New in Moodle, Re:View Essentials, and Moodle Housekeeping. The sessions were a chance for TEL to reach a large groups and for staff to ask questions ahead of semester one. Another benefit was being able to put faces to names, albeit in a virtual environment. Thank you to all those who attended.
Between 22nd-24th September TEL offered staff a chance to book a 30 minute online one-to-one with a Learning Technologist or Instructional Designer. Feedback suggests that these sessions were greatly appreciated. In three days we received more than 20 bookings on a range of topics such as, How can I edit videos in Re:View? What are my options for running quizzes in Moodle? And How do I run a peer assessment activity on Moodle?
Missed a workshop? Recordings and presentation slides from all of our pre-semester sessions are available on the CLT Hub Staff Development training page.
We have now released a series of resources for staff, to provide additional opportunities to learn about the learning technologies we support. You can self-enrol at the link below, and work at your own pace, with the chance to gain a certificate on completion (which we will record in iTrent to recognise your efforts). The resources complement the workshops we deliver and you can currently access the following:
- 301 Moodle Essentials
- 302 Moodle Refresh/Housekeeping
- 307 Moodle Assignment – Grading
- 312 Accessibility Essentials
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a specific query
- Join the TEL Community of Practice on Microsoft Teams. Share your experiences of teaching with technology, ask questions to colleagues, and spark conversations.
- Book an online one-to-one meeting with an Instructional Designer.
Frequently Asked Questions
The CLT Hub has a wealth of support information. We'd like to point you towards two frequently asked questions during this pre-semester period.
- Why can't students see my Moodle page?
- How do I share a folder with another cohort/member of staff in Re:View?
