Technology Enhanced Learning
The Technology Enhanced Learning team (TEL) provides guidance, training and support for a wide range of educational tools and technologies designed to assist staff and students with the process of learning, teaching and assessment.
Working closely with academic staff we highlight areas where the inclusion of specific technologies can enhance and extend the processes of learning, teaching and assessment. We provide guidance on which technologies or tools are most appropriate for particular situations, offer expertise and advice on installation, configuration and ways in which to embed them into your teaching.
