Quick wins (2)
This week I gave a short presentation on ‘Quick Learning Technology Wins’ to a group of Programme Directors and LT Co-ordinators within the School of Social, Political and Geographical Sciences at the request of the Associate Dean for Teaching, Ruth Kinna. My starting point for this was that academic colleagues have many conflicting demands on their time, so it is not helpful if we promote tools or approaches that add significantly to this burden. Here is an expanded version of the PPT I used, with enough detail to make sense to anyone interested who wasn’t there.
These are not necessarily the most important things that you can do with learning technologies – but they do all have the advantage that you can introduce them without having to spend hours learning the software. That said, in some cases (for instance, exploiting GoogleDocs for collaborative writing activites), thinking time will still be required!
