Take 5: Digital Productivity   online course

Date/time: Monday the 11th June - Friday 15th June
Venue: Online

Session overview

This bitesize online course will help you look at ways in which you can do things better, faster and/or more flexibly by using digital tools. Over 5 days you will try out a range of apps that can be used across your devices to help things such as:

  • Communication and collaboration
  • Managing and organising tasks
  • Note-making

Each day's activities can be completed in about 30 minutes, but you can spend as little or as much time on each day’s activities as you want - and fit them into your day as you want.

By the end of this course you should have identified and started using some tools that work in your own context. Many of the tools we will look at can be used for personal/domestic activities as well as work and/or study and would be equally useful to staff and students.


Expanding Reality: A look at virtual, augmented and mixed reality in education

Date/time:  Friday 4th May
Venue: Fulton Building FUL-211

Session overview

Virtual, augmented, mixed? What’s the difference and what does it mean for education? Is there a place for these cutting edge technologies? If so, what does it look like?

In this hands-on introductory session participants will be introduced to a range of exciting technologies and find out what all the fuss is about. We will follow the hands on session with a facilitated discussion on how we can incorporate these tools into our teaching to enhance the learning experience.
