Diversify your teaching with digital tools

Fingers make a heart sign on a dusty touch screen

At #OxEngage we’re proud to match you based on meaningful aspects of your interest in teaching and learning with technology, “not just that you both like ping-pong or once visited Belgium” (to misquote an ad campaign)

On Tuesday 14th February make a date with #OxEngage for a networking opportunity to encourage you to diversify your teaching with digital tools, book now.

Join us for this ‘birds of a feather’ – a get together – for teaching staff to meet colleagues and experts in digital technologies for learning and teaching. Curious how you can use digital tools for in-lecture polls, to engage tutorial students, enhance feedback or tackle learning challenges? Whether you already have experience with digital teaching tools or are a complete beginner, join us to learn and share how you and your students can benefit from adopting new techniques.

This event is run by the SHOAL project and Academic IT Services in support of the University’s Digital Education Strategy.
