Digital Education Support
The team’s remit is to support the effective adoption of digital activities for teaching and learning. This is deliberately broad and covers face-to-face consultancy in workshops or direct support, as well as online by sharing good practice across the University case studies, worksheets and videos. The support model is detailed below. For more information on any of the elements please contact: email@example.com.

Digital Education CPD
Digital Education CPD sessions are run on a regularly throughout the academic year by the Digital Education Developers. The team have recently complete a review of CPD and are preparing to deliver sessions ahead of the 2018/19 academic year. These CPD sessions take two forms, University wide workshops, which are this year being run in July and September 2018 (you can book for these sessions directly through the HR staff development portal page), and school specific workshops which are run by each Digital Education Developer in their relevant college. All Digital Education CPD focuses on using digital tools to solve specific pedagogical challenges and has been designed around the HEA UK PSF framework.

‘ABC’ Curriculum Design Workshops
Based on the successful curriculum design workshops pioneered at UCL, the ABC workshop offers a toolkit of traditional and digital learning design methods. Through discussion and planning a useful oversight of module design, methods, formative / summative feedback and different elements of teaching, learning and assessment are developed across modules within a programme.
These workshops are highly engaging and action-oriented and involves mapping out learning activities (using view point cards) across modules or programmes through a range of stages and can usefully be adapted to look at enhancing current activities as well as redesigning new programmes or module delivery.
