The LALT showcase: Education in a Digital Age (#DigiEd17) event took place on 7th November and was designed to help show elements of good practice and new technologies that are being used across the University of Lincoln.
On the day over 350+ staff and students attended the event despite the weather conditions. Many workshops were attended, all led by academics, external suppliers and our guest speaker, Eric Stoller. These involved demonstrations of digital technologies within learning and teaching and gave staff and students a chance to experiment with these technologies and to discuss how they could be used in their lectures/seminars. We also had a series of presenters who gave presentions on how they have used technology to enhance their teaching. This was often presented with demonstrations.
The feedback we recieved from the attendees was very positive and it generated an 81% satisfaction rate. One member of staff said “it was hands down the most inspiring session I have been to in years. Loved it and keep doing it”. Whilst another added that “this was an EXCELLENT event!…it was VERY well organised and VERY relevant to what the university is about”
