As term begins we wanted to take this opportunity to let staff know about the skills and development opportunities Learning Services are providing as part of our Developing Digital Excellence programme.
This is the second year we have created a series of workshops where we wanted to share our expertise and collaborate with staff within a number of key development areas. We are continuing to use the 4 strands as we feel they resonate with the key drivers for teams. We have also got some new developing areas, following the feedback we had last year.
If you are a new member of staff, the sessions on using classrooms and lecture theatres may be very useful, and we are also keen to welcome all new academic staff to our introudctory session around using Learning Edge. This session introduces staff to thier test area in Blackboard and looks at some of the key elements of the system for all new starters.
These sessions are face to face and are all delivered in our training room on the 2nd floor of the LINC building, however we are keen to deliver more sessions as online using Collaborate as we had some excellent feedback from our online session in July when we had over 50 people logged into the Blackboard Service Pack 12 update session.
These sessions are all within our programme and you can book your place online via the HR Staff Development booking system.. If there are sessions you feel might be beneficial to your team as a bespoke event, or you feel your team could attend as an online session, please get in touch with me.
