I am pleased to announce that Steve Burholt will serve as the Support and Consultancy Manager for Technology Enhanced Learning. Steve will lead a team of specialists who provide advice, consultancy and support in the use of technology to enhance teaching, learning and outreach activities. In addition to supporting the University’s VLE (WebLearn), the Technology Enhanced Learning team will be leading the evaluation and application of technology to further educational objectives: e.g., computer-based exams and the flipped classroom model for teaching, which has proved beneficial to the student learning experience. This team also plays a significant role in supporting the aims of the University’s Digital Education Strategy (2016-2020).
Steve has been working for the University of Oxford since April 2015 and previously served as a learning technologist on the WebLearn Improved Student Experience (WISE) project, which focused on improving the design and content of around 20 WebLearn sites. Steve reports to Kate Lindsay, Head of Technology Enhanced Learning.
