Is this course right for me?

Target Audience: Any staff who would like to participate in an active, ongoing peer support network, learn from one another, and share their own practical experiences of using technology to enhance teaching and learning at Strathclyde.

As academics, we know that all aspects of our work are increasingly touched by technology. However, the promise of technology enhanced learning, and the reality of using technology in our day-to-day teaching activities, can be two very different things.

The purpose of this network is not to provide training in pedagogical theory, nor is it to sermonise about the benefits of social media or the use of smart-devices in class.

It is rather an opportunity for academic staff with a wide range of experiences and varying levels of confidence to get together, ask questions, learn from and support one another.

Who is it for?

Any staff who would like to participate in an active, ongoing peer support network, learn from one another, and share their own practical experiences of using technology to enhance teaching and learning at Strathclyde.

What will the network do?

  • It is hoped that the first task of the network will begin by identifying a handful of cross-cutting themes related to the use of technology in teaching.
  • This will then give rise to a series of practical discussions where participants can explore and demonstrate their own solutions and provide one another with on-going peer support.
  • Crucially, the network will think about how what is being learned can be shared with colleagues across the University.
