  3. 3. TEL – What is it?For the purpose of this policy,TEL is defined as any Informationand Communication Technology(ICT) that directly supportslearning and teaching.This is seen as a more inclusiveterm than those of e-learning orblended learning which often lackclarity of definition

Course DevelopersTEL - Who we are
  5. 5. TEL - What we doSupport the TEL Strategieswithin the Faculty.These being•The UWE TEL Strategy•The Faculty TEL Strategy•The Departmental TELStrategy
  6. 6. Background and contextThe UWE TEL survey (Falconer 2011) reveals arange of other technologies in use, both frominternal provision and external provision, examplesof which include an extensive range of websites,web 2.0 tools, and social networking sites.The embedding of practice within Faculties anddepartments is a challenge however (Falconer2011) and the ELDU are developing aninfrastructure which strongly aligns the ELDU withidentified staff within each Faculty
  7. 7. Faculty TEL strategy : Aims IThe overall aims will be:•to ensure that the Faculty takes full advantage ofthe affordances of TEL for meaningfulenhancement of existing and future provision ofour portfolio•to ensure meaningful enhancement of the qualityof our teaching and studentexperience through the use of TEL.
  8. 8. Faculty TEL strategy : Aims II3 key TEL activities will be enabled to havemultiple uses:•Realign support infrastructure for effectivedevelopment and online-learning delivery ofcredit- and non-credit bearing content•Enhanced role of TEL in modules /programmes / courses•Staff and student development in TEL

  10. 10. Faculty TEL strategy : Outcomes• Audit of Blackboard Usage and BlackboardMinimum Standards• Departmentally agreed strategies forimplementation• Staff Development sessions identified• Identification of 1 suitable programmefor delivery ‘online’
  11. 11. Re-alignment of supportinfrastructure• LET and TEL (It gets complicated!)• Learning Educational Technologies (LET) andTechnology Enhanced Learning (TEL)• New TEL unit established with an I-gradeacademic and 3 new E-grade technologist posts
  12. 12. Course Developer
  13. 13. TEL - What we actually do …• Set minimum standards for information on theVLE• Run workshops and taster showcases• Help with the instructional design of learningobjects• Help plan and deliver online learningenvironments• Desk side / Just in time support
  14. 14. Appropriateness
  15. 15. Scalability
  16. 16. Sustainability
  17. 17. Interoperability ??
  18. 18. TEL - Why we do it …• Enhance ‘Student Experience’• Modernisation of teaching• Increased competitiveness nationally• Increased competitiveness globally
  19. 19. Transformative• Learners that feel more supported in practice• Deliver our excellent teaching further• An up-skilled academic work force• Support teaching that encourages an‘active’ learner
  20. 20. Problems I• Cross campus• Organically created support structure canbecome complex to negotiate• Lack of clarity of whom supports what• Communication• Politics
  21. 21. Problems II• Outsourcing of use of technology to youngermembers of the family• Confidence and exposure• Not understanding the basics• The over fetishisation of acronyms• Lack of literacy over what they are doing already
  22. 22. Change management approaches• Hopeful approach• Tool based approach• Continuum based framework
  23. 23. Hopeful Approach
  24. 24. Tools based approach• Staff supporting a range of supported toolschosen by the Faculty• Showcase Events to enlighten academics ontools and approaches• Training Events to help with the designand implementation on specific tools
  25. 25. The SmorgasboardSmorgasboard is a Scandinavian meal servedbuffet-style
  26. 26. Why this approach?• Creativity of academic not stymied• Tools used appropriately• Tools used where appropriate• Help traverse steep learning curves• Encourage self sufficiency• Consistency in delivery
  27. 27. The supported software tools• Blackboard Learn• Adobe Presenter 8• PebblePad• uChoose
  28. 28. Project Specific tools• WordPress (Public Health Pilot)• Thinking Worlds (Nursing Simulation Pilot)• Turning Point (Nursing Examination Pilot)• iSpring (FdSc Health Sciences)• MediaSite (FdSc Health Sciences)• Xerte (Capita Project)• Blackboard App (Learning Disabilities)
  29. 29. The supported hardware tools1 x Computer KinectMultiple headphonesand microphones sets8 x Bamboo Pads1 x BluetoothHeadset1 x Multi-PatternUSB microphone6 x USBVideo & StillCameras4 x TabletLaptops
  30. 30. Adobe Presenter 8• Allows Presentations to be put online• Allows classroom time to be freed up forconstructive sessions• Allows quizzing at a distance• Allows spoken information to be packaged anddelivered online

  32. 32. For the academic• Adds on to PowerPoint, no PowerPoint traininggiven here• Training material curated with a prerequisite toengage with before event• Training “flipped”• Must attend training to accesssoftware
  33. 33. Adobe Presenter trainingTime Section40 minutes Introduction to Adobe Presenter with examples20 minutes Thinking about the supporting pedagogy120 minutes How to: Audio, Animation, Quizzes20 minutes Discussion – Good practice and implementation90 minutes Supported authoring and mop up
  34. 34. uChoose• Branching stories simulation (Aldrich, 2005)• Making case based learning more interactive byusing ‘Virtual Patients’• Contextualises theory in practice• A safe way to learn from mistakes If thepersons dies they can do it again)• Re-plays offers different learning opportunities• Student centred exploration of cases based ontheir decisions

  36. 36. For the Academic
  37. 37. uChoose trainingTime Section30 minutes Welcome and introduction to Case Based Learning75 minutes Introduction to the uChoose application60 minutes One to One authoring30 minutes What next? Ideas going forward
  38. 38. Opening lines“Two camps with technology those who love it andembrace it and find it exciting but there are those who feelthat you lose a lot of the natural interactions that you mayget in a clinical situation by using a virtual patient. How dowe prepare people in a simulation environment for realworld interactions as a physio or a nurse?The reality is there are positive and negative elementsassociated with the use of virtual patients and actually itcan be quite challenging to develop such activities so wemust be mindful of these aspects from the start.”Lucy Watkins, uChoose Lead
  39. 39. Events where we introduce different tools basedaround Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)under two themes:•Methods of delivering content(Embedded Learning objects)•Methods of facilitating learning(Blogs, Wiki’s, e-Tivities, Virtual Classrooms)TEL Showcasing Events
  40. 40. Fun atmosphere• The idea is to get stuck in• Just give it a go and demystify TEL• Overcome lack of confidence• Depoliticise the expectationto engage with TEL
  41. 41. Outcomes of eventsBy the end of the 2 hour session academics wouldhave:•Use a Bamboo Pad with unfamiliar equipmentCreated a video on a ‘flip’ cam•Uploaded video to Kaltura•Create a page and updated a Wiki on Blackboard•Use an embed code on within your pages .HTML
  42. 42. A typical showcaseTime Section20 minutes Direction of travel with Technology Enhanced Learning –the 3E framework ??10 minutes The Blackboard Template explained15 minutes Showcase of methods of delivering content25 minutes Group Activity – Healthcare Pictionary using a Bamboo Pad10 Minutes Coffee Break Activity – Record 30 second video about Iheart Glenside10 Minutes Uploading content to Kaltura10 Minutes Blogs, Wiki’s and facilitated spaces15 minutes Embedding I heart Glenside video to a Wiki
  43. 43. Support structure• Teach a man to fish …• Frontloaded support
  44. 44. Revisiting the Smorgasboard• A tools based approach is a less didactic way tointroduce TEL techniques• Visibility• It empowers the academic to think amd beinformed about how and where they would applya technique• Relies on Academic identified learning needsand drive• The desire to drive has to be in place for this tobe effective
  45. 45. Benchmark framework3E FrameworkA different change management strategy?
  46. 46. Summary• Here to support academics achieve TEL strategygoals• Currently holding two types of events• Training on single tools• Showcasing multiple approaches• Aim to be appropriate in the usage and adoptionof tools to support a bespoke range of outcomes• Events that allow large parts of hands on activity
