Educational Technology Workshops

Educational Technology Workshops

These workshops are intended as basic introductions to key aspects of using technology to support teaching and learning. We have a range of face-to-face or online sessions available which you can attend.

Each session is also mapped to the relevant dimensions of the United Kingdom Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). We hope that drawing all the opportunities together in this way, and mapping to the UKPSF, will allow staff to plan their professional development for the term, and more easily evidence claims for Fellowships of the Higher Education Academy, which are based on this framework.
