There are several digital tools and technologies that can help you in your teaching practice.
Whether you have identified areas of improvement or if you would like to learn more about a specific digital tool, we hope the following collections will help guide you through a range of resources available to you.
To access our list of recommended learning resources, you will need to log in to Moodle, our virtual learning environment. We’ve included a range of resources, from ‘How-to’ guides on the Microsoft website, to courses within LinkedIn Learning. As a member of staff, you have free access to LinkedIn Learning. Make sure you have registered before using any of the LinkedIn Learning courses.
All the resources have been mapped to the HE Teacher role profile that has been provided by Jisc, which focuses on the digital capabilities relevant to teaching professionals working in the higher education (HE) sector. It’s important to stress, that no one will have all the capabilities included in this profile. This is intended to demonstrate how new areas of practice are emerging and how you can use your digital skills in different areas of your role.
If you complete 4 or more resources within a specific digital capability, you will be eligible to apply for a range of digital badges. You can use these badges as evidence of your learning, that you can share with colleagues and wider staff within the University or via your LinkedIn profile to demonstrate your knowledge and skills.
