Technology-Enhanced Learning guides

When used correctly, learning technologies can assist in adding communication, collaboration, and co-creation to a students' learning - both inside and outside of the classroom. However, we also understand that there is a lot to remember when using technology in your educational practices and sometimes it can be confusing when deciding which technologies to use, when and how.

To try to help you along with using technology in your teaching, the CLE have developed guides which are accessible on the University of Bedfordshire Technology Enhanced Learning Community on BREO:

Teaching with Technology workshops and courses

The University of Bedfordshire has a number of learning tools available, many of which can be administered through BREO, the university's virtual learning environment. These include Panopto (lecture capture); Pebblepad (e-portfolios); and Turnitin (assessment text matching service)

In addition, to help you understand how you can use learning technologies to reap the most rewards from their affordances, we have developed a number of courses around using technologies inside and outside of the classroom to enhance student engagement.

To find out how to use each of these and more, the CLE have short courses available to you which you can find on our workshops page
