Digital Pedagogy

We work in partnership with ITS & LLI to support academic staff in the use of digital tools and resources, with a particular focus on the use of technology to enable, enhance and enrich learning experiences and to empower learners and teachers. 

To help inform technology purchase requirements and decisions we use a researched informed approach together with our internal network of academics with an interest in technology enhanced learning 

Our focus this year is on:

  • embedding the digital literacy graduate attribute across the undergraduate curriculum
  • support course teams in their use of digital tools, services and resources
  • streamline and promote and accessible collection of digital resources
