Working closely with academic and professional services staff, we aim to support the enhancement of learning, teaching and assessment practices through the use of technology. We provide both pedagogical and technical support for the development and evaluation of new technologies.

We aim to:

  • support the delivery of institutional strategic objectives and policies relating to learning and teaching
  • provide administrative and technical support as well as training on the use of the virtual learning environment and a range of other learning technologies
  • advise on how e-learning technologies and methodologies may be embedded in the curriculum to enhance the student learning experience
  • explore new technologies and methods of online teaching and share effective e-learning practices

 

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)

The Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Team in the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT), works closely with academic departments and professional services to provide support for the effective use of technology to enhance learning, teaching and assessment.  Our work is aligned to the University’s Education Strategy.

Key areas of activity include:

  • supporting departments and individuals in (re)designing curricula in order to take account of the benefits offered by technology to enhance the student experience (including ‘flipping’ techniques)
  • providing advice and guidance on digital assessment and e-marking and e-feedback methods (including rubrics, statement banks, audio feedback, etc)
  • troubleshooting and providing ‘how to’ advice on the use of learning technologies
  • showcasing examples of technology-enhanced learning and teaching practices and facilitating networking and discussions to share best practice
  • leading pilot projects to evaluate the effectiveness of new learning technologies and integrations
  • running a dedicated support service for our range of learning environments/tools (including telephone and email support)
  • supporting the development of learning technology bids for external funding
  • horizon scanning and advising on current and future national/international developments.

If you are interested in educational innovation, have a specific learning and teaching challenge (for example, effectively teaching large groups, providing more timely feedback, etc) or are simply interesting in what technology can do for you and want to know how others are using it, please do not hesitate to contact us at: e-learning@bath.ac.uk.
