The York Technology-Enhanced Learning Handbook provides pedagogical advice in the use of learning technologies and a way in to the resources and support available at the University of York. One of the main aims of the Handbook is to enable staff to develop their practice using technology. We are keen to get your feedback, in particular how the Handbook has supported or changed your teaching practice.

- The purpose of the York TEL Handbook is to enable staff to engage with technology-enhanced learning approaches and develop their practice independently.
- The Handbook provides a structured approach to accessing our guides, case studies, walk-throughs and examples.
- It is a key resource in support of the York Pedagogy, aligning use of technology-enhanced learning with institutional approach to learning and teaching.
- We developed the Handbook after a review of existing resources, identifying guides to improve, separating technical how-to guides (within the VLE for just-in-time help) from design, evaluation, tool guides and case studies (on ELDT website).
- Key features include: baseline approaches to using technology, checklists for practice and to highlight areas for development, comparisons of different tools, mixture of non-text resources to make the Handbook engaging and show through example different content approaches.
- Creating the Handbook provided us with an opportunity to evaluate tools we recommend, learn new content delivery approaches, address gaps in existing support resources, and create a resource we can point to in workshops and newsletters.
