If you’re an academic at York and you’re on Twitter, keep an eye on the #YorkTELchat hashtag over the next few weeks, as we’re going to be sharing all of the key messages from our York TEL Handbook in easy, bitesize chunks. We will be tweeting from Monday 11 April right through the summer term, with a new key message every day.
The York TEL Handbook has been put together to offer advice and guidance on effective ways to embed more technology into your teaching. It will be useful for those involved with the work on the York Pedagogy who are thinking about embedding technology-enhanced learning (TEL) approaches at the programme level, and can also benefit individuals who are wanting to learn more about current good practice in relation to TEL. The handbook is packed full of recommended approaches, case studies and examples of effective practice and technical guidance on using specific tools in Yorkshare and other technologies provided at York. There is also an emphasis on creating accessible online learning resources and suggests that lecturers consider student abilities, device use and preferences when planning their online module content. You will also find advice on evaluation approaches and developing your practice in response to student feedback. Even if you don’t work at York, but want to find out more about technology-enhanced learning, this handbook is for you!
We’d love for you to join in and use the #YorkTELchat hashtag to let us know what you think of our handbook. We’d also love to hear your feedback and if you can think of any improvements that we can make, feel free to suggest them using our feedback form. Even if you’re not on Twitter, you can still follow the #YorkTELchat hashtag and see the new key message for each day.
