Many colleagues will be aware that we have been running a series of stakeholder engagement workshops with academics from each of our faculties.  We are keen to ensure that we have captured the views of a wide range of academic staff..from those who have been VLE champions to staff who may not have had much interaction with the VLE.  We have been encouraging discussions beyond our current VLE product, Blackboard, to explore technologies of the future and what a student focussed on-line learning environment could look like.

The VLE evaluation project is aiming to seek out your thoughts and comments around the future requirements of our universities VLE.

With this in mind and the approaching holiday season, we are proposing to run one further workshop with an open invitation to all academic staff.  This workshop will take place on Friday 11th December 9.30 – 12.30, the workshop will conclude with a festive Christmas lunch..and mulled wine.

There are a limited number so spaces for the workshop so its first come first served.  Please contact Katherine Richardson, [email protected] ext 7754

We look forward to seeing  you

Best wishes

Rachel and Mike and the VLE Project Team
