Technology-enhanced learning

Our role

We are part of the Quality Enhancement and Student Success portfolio at Sheffield Hallam University.

Our team

  • leads on the strategic direction and development of technology as a means of improving learning, teaching and assessment at the University
  • works closely with the IT department and faculty technology-enhanced learning teams to promote, support and improve the available tools and recommended approaches to accomplish this
  • provides support and guidance on teaching approaches for academic staff via staff development opportunities, curriculum design guidance and other learning resources

Our main areas of work

We provide regular updates on the team blog which covers our current work and research.

The technology enhanced learning blog has been developed for staff members and provides information about e-learning developments and opportunities.

As well as the work detailed on our blogs, we are committed to improving the digital literacy of our staff and students. Many of them need to improve their digital skills and knowledge and we are currently looking at innovative ways in which we can support this.

We also continually review existing technology enhanced learning (TEL) tools and support upgrades to them. Each year we ensure we have the most appropriate tools to meet our teaching needs. With this in mind we review what tools we have and upgrade or change them as necessary.

We also pay attention to sector trends and activities around innovative TEL developments. TEL is a rapidly changing area and we need to explore both new technologies and the way existing educational technologies are being used in the sector.
