Learning how to share

Staff Development: eShare: Making the most of your Digital Repository

What is eShare? Why do we have it? How can it benefit me? Come along for an introduction to our digital repository for teaching and learning and see how you can make the most of eShare.

eShare offers you the opportunity to showcase your work to the world, store presentations, video clips and images in an easily accessible way and find ready-made, adaptable materials for your teaching.

In this hands-on session you will:

  • Create a profile – your profile can then be used for departmental webpages, EHRA and CV creation.
  • Learn how to search the repository for teaching resources, guides to technologies and learning resources.
  • Upload your own items – copyright and creative commons will be explained and demystified.

Book on to this session online via the Staff Development Booking system.
