Enhancing teaching and learning with technology: two events for your diary

Enhancing teaching and learning with technology
Wednesday 1 March 14:00-17:00

Student looks at a tablet computer outside the Blavatnik School of Government University of OxfordJoin Dr Xavier Laurent and Emma Procter-Legg for a hands-on workshop that explores how to integrate technology in teaching to enhance student engagement.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • improve in-class communication;
  • check students’ understanding of key concepts and adapt your lectures on the fly;
  • support collaborative learning activities in class or at a distance;
  • embed mobile devices that many of us carry in a classroom setting (phone, tablet, or laptop);
  • share resources quickly, straight to your students’ devices.

Examples will use simple low-cost/free apps and technologies. Bring along your own device (BYOD) to make the most of this session.

Diversify your teaching with digital tools

Whether you already have experience with digital tools or are a complete beginner, join us to learn how you and your students can benefit from adopting new techniques and/or to share your own experiences.

The session will be led by Jocelyne Hughes (Continuing Education) and Lucy Tallents (Zoology) from the SHOAL project, and by Xavier Laurent and Steve Burholt (learning technologists, Academic IT). It is organised as part of the #OxEngage series.
