York Technology for the York Pedagogy: Summer Sessions

Learning with technology in the York Pedagogy

Departments are currently engaged in mapping activities and developing enhancement plans for their undergraduate programmes as they seek to implement the principles of the York Pedagogy. Learning designs that utilise technologies in a considered and structured way can have a significant impact on student learning, supporting a range of learning approaches and experiences. In these sessions we will be showing how centrally supported learning technologies have been embedded into individual module and programme designs at the University of York  to address specific learning outcomes, supporting effective staff-student contact and scaffolding student work.

The session is taking place twice on campus; tea and coffee will be provided. Webinars are online only and you will receive joining instructions a few days before.

Please register to attend here.

  • Campus West – Tue 28 June – 2pm – V/C/123
  • Online – Mon 25 July – 12.30pm
  • Online – Wed 24 August – 12.30pm
  • Online – Thu 15 September – 12.30pm

Due to low demand we have postponed the Campus East session and invite colleagues to attend the online sessions instead.

Eight short case studies will be presented from across the faculties to provide a taster of how learning can be enhanced through appropriate use of technology. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion on the transferability of the case studies to your teaching practice.

  • Deeper understanding and active engagement with lecture content using Yorkshare Quizzes.
  • Supporting problem classes and complex topics with Screencasts.
  • Targeted online formative feedback using Yorkshare Assignment Tool.
  • Online peer assessment and review using the Yorkshare Peer-Assessment Tool.
  • Reflection on practice and theory using Yorkshare Blogs and Journals.
  • Synchronous contact outside of class to punctuate student learning on placement, or support distributed learning in labs using Blackboard Collaborate.
  • Engagement in lectures with informal assessment of learning and discussion using ResponseWare App.
  • Communicating the subject and developing multimedia skills with Blogger and YouTube.

Note this is not a technical hands-on session, however we can direct you to relevant guidance or you can access the York Technology-Enhanced Learning Handbook.

All lecturing and related teaching staff are welcome. We look forward to seeing you at one of the sessions.
