Each term Technology Enhanced Learning hosts a Show & TEL event designed to showcase innovative and inspiring teaching practices at the University of Sussex. This term’s event will be held on Friday 27th April, 11:30-1pm in Fulton 113. Book your place now!
Show & TEL is a collaborative forum for colleagues across the University of Sussex who have an interest in the use of technology to support teaching and enrich student learning. Facilitated by colleagues in Technology Enhanced Learning, Show & TEL is an opportunity to get involved in conversations around the use of learning technologies at Sussex.
The event provides an informal space to:
- network with colleagues from across the institution with shared interests
- share practice and hear about the use of technology in different schools
- learn about new projects or developments from TEL colleagues
- feed into future developments in the use of technology in teaching and learning at Sussex
This term we will be joined by Dr Liz McDonnell, Research Fellow (Sociology), and Dr Frances Miley, Senior Lecturer in Accounting.
Dr Liz McDonnell will be telling us all about her Digital Practice Award project, ‘Asexuality for students in health and education’. During this funded project, researchers from the School of Law, Politics and Sociology and colleagues from Technology Enhanced Learning collaborated to create multi-modal digital artefacts that were designed to share learning from research around asexuality. Aimed at medical students and teacher trainees, these artefacts were intended to provide individuals with new ways of thinking about asexuality in relation to identity and intimacy.
Dr Frances Miley will be sharing her experience of teaching on an undergraduate Economics degree within the School of Business, Management and Economics. Frances will introduce some of her innovative teaching practices. This will include work around changing staff and student cultures as well as induction initiatives, for which she recently won a Teaching Award at the University of Sussex for ‘Outstanding or Innovative Undergraduate Teaching’.
Frances and Liz’s presentations will then be followed by an update from Technology Enhanced Learning which will include information about Canvas, the University of Sussex’s new Virtual Learning Environment. Join us to talk teaching, learning and technology, meet colleagues from around the institution and connect with your TEL team. Tea, coffee and a light lunch will be available. Book your place now!
