The support provided for staff in the development of Technology Enhanced Learning including a dedicated Digital Productivity Lab
Having a dedicated Digital Productivity Lab (DPL) where support for Faculty staff is provided by both LTD and the Faculty SOLSTICE fellows allows the development of creative learning materials that can be used in the virtual learning environment. Supporting the development of staff is key to this innovation as the pedagogy that is associated with face-to-face learning can be adapted to the virtual world promoting mixed methods of learning and teaching. This can have a positive impact on resources if supported and designed well and can be easily transferred to other settings with the support of Faculty Learning and Teaching Associate Deans, LTD and SOLSTICE fellows.
What is the impact?
The DPL has had a positive impact for students across programmes, in particular the use of lecture capture for key concepts in learning and meeting the needs of students with a recognised SpLD. The development of virtual learning encourages not only the development of the students’ digital literacy as a key transferrable skill for employability, but also the development of independent lifelong learning through the use of learning theories.
