Inclusion is the key to successful TEL

In this article published by Turning Technologies – makers of audience response system TurningPoint, clickers and ResponseWare – Professor of Chemistry Education at the University of East Anglia and National Teaching Fellow Simon Lancaster (@S_J_lancaster) discusses how he is encouraging his colleagues to use Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) to engage students in lecture theatres. Here is a video of Simon’s keynote from the 2015 Sheffield Hallam University Learning and Teaching Conference in which he expands on and demonstrates these ideas.

Getting Started with Assessment and Feedback in HE

On March first, Prof Sally Brown, recognised expert in Assessment and Feedback for HE, delivered a Webinar on Getting Started with Assessment and Feedback as part of the Transforming Assessment series. The recording of the seminar, both as a Blackboard Collaborate session and on YouTube is now available and well worth watching as part of your CPD.

The link to the seminar page provides access to the  many resources for beginners in HE assessment mentioned in the Webinar. Sally Brown (twitter @ProfSallyBrown) and her partner Phil Race (@RacePhil) are both regulars at the weekly #LTHEChat. Both they and the Transforming Assessment resources are well worth getting to know.
