In this short online course, running from Monday 21st to Friday 25th February, we will be exploring and learning together with lots of opportunities for you to try tools that look interesting to you. Members of the Technology Enhanced Learning team will be on call to answer questions, contribute to discussions and try things out with you. It’s up to you when you engage with the course and how much time you spend on it, but you should be able to cover the basics in 30 minutes a day.

Course outline

The course gives us an opportunity to look at how digital technologies and services can support us to work in more efficient, dynamic and connected ways. Many of the approaches and tools we will explore can be used for personal/domestic activities as well as work and study. 

This is the plan, but conversations will inevitably overlap and cross over days.

  • Monday – Teamworking with Microsoft Teams
  • Tuesday – Communication and collaboration
  • Wednesday – Managing and organising tasks
  • Thursday – Notemaking
  • Friday – Reflection, tips and tricks
