Presented by Dr John Couperthwaite (College of Medical and Dental Sciences) and Andrew Davis.

Technology Enhanced Teaching and Learning is a new seminar series launched by the University of Birmingham as part of the ‘Transforming teaching Delivery’ strand of Curriculum Review, and invites those using educational technologies and software (for example Canvas) to discuss how it is shaping and impacting upon teaching and learning within higher education. Seminars focus upon the pedagogical practices and approaches rather than the ‘technical’ aspects of implementation, and provide an opportunity for participants to not only explore best practices for using technology to enhance higher education teaching and learning, but also to explore their impact upon student learning and course design and delivery. They will look at the benefits of using technology, as well as potential ‘stumbling blocks’ and how these may be successfully overcome.

The Technology Enhanced Teaching and Learning seminar series has been designed so that it will be of interest to anyone currently innovating with new technologies in their teaching or wishing to explore ideas for the implementation of new approaches. They provide the opportunity to meet with other ‘like minded’ individuals from across the University so that we can share effective practices, approaches and experiences for the benefit of all staff and students.
