The presentations are as follows:

CHAT: Congenital Heart Assessment Tool, delivered through ‘Articulate Rise’
Dr Kerry Gaskin, Head of Department for Post-Qualifying Courses
Gerry Beattie, Academic Learning Technologist 

This online learning resource aims to equip health care professionals with the knowledge, skills and understanding required to teach parents about going home from hospital with their infant following the first stage of surgery for complex congenital heart disease.

Using PebblePad to record student achievement for Sports Coaching

Nathan Caesar, Single Honours Sports Development and Coaching Student

This presentation will discuss how PebblePad has been used to record evidence of student achievement in Sports Coaching. The students have been encouraged to use the PebblePad App to record video and audio evidence using mobile devices while coaching. This evidence is subsequently linked into a Portfolio which is then submitted as their final assessment.

Engaging masters students through Blackboard Collaborate

This presentation will provide a case study in to how Blackboard Collaborate has been used throughout a Masters in Applied Sports Performance Analysis course to deliver learning content to a broad range of students across all of modules. The benefits and challenges that the lecturers have faced regarding delivery style, learning the platform and engaging students will be addressed along with the solutions that have been used to enhance student learning.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Technology Enhanced Learning Unit

christmas-3841937_1280What a busy but productive year we have had; we’ve moved offices to Woodbury 73 and re-branded the team, including a change of name from LTTU to TELU. We also have a new email address – so be sure to contact us at tel@worc.ac.uk as our old email address will be switched off in the new year. We have also put together a new website www.uwtel.co.uk which we hope you will find useful. We continued to support academic colleagues in a range of technologies and appointed a new member to the team who will begin in January.

We hope you have all had a good year too! We look forward to working with you again in 2019. We have a range of projects and events lined up, including our ‘TEL’ Me More conference on the 7th March. We’ll also have a new programme of workshops which we’ll release in the new year.

Don’t forget to follow our blog to keep up to date with all of our news, events and updates to learning technologies at the University of Worcester.

We’ll be closed from 12pm on Monday 24th December, returning on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year,
