Over the Summer we’ve been beavering away developing an exciting menu of workshops and training activities for the Autumn term, blending our most popular sessions from last year with a range of new workshops tackling hot topics in teaching and learning with technology.
Staff can get support with specific classroom technologies, such as our Introduction to Poll Everywhere, Advanced SMARTboard workshop and overview of the Media on Demand available at the University.
We have a strong focus on creative applications of technology, exploring Mobile Creativity and Creating Multimedia Learning Materials as well as the expanded world of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality.
Community also features prominently, from Working Together Online to developing a Connected Experience for Students on Placement, Peer Instruction and Creating Opportunities for Students to Showcase their Work.
“Peer Instruction: Just-in-time Teaching”
We’ll be re-running our online Digital Productivity course that was such a success at the beginning of the Summer, and complementing this with sessions on Managing Time and Tasks and Building a Professional Learning Network.
Teaching challenges are tackled as we revisit our highly popular session on Teaching Large Groups with Technology, offer strategies for In-class Formative Feedback and address issues of inclusion through sessions such as Reaching out to International Students through Technology and Creating Engaging & Inclusive Presentations.
Effective feedback and assessment remains a high priority for the University, and we’ll be offering direct support for your practice through the following workshops:
All the term’s sessions are now available for University of Sussex staff to book, via the TEL workshops page. You’ll also be able to find fuller details on all the topics, along with the date and location. We know that these times may not be suitable for everyone, so if there’s a session you would like to come to, but can’t, please let us know via the TEL mailbox. We’ll offer a selection of the most requested workshops in the Spring term and will do our best to accommodate everyone who expresses an interest.
As ever, if you would like us to deliver a training session tailored to your School/Department’s needs, please contact us – we’ll be happy to discuss this with you.
