Teaching with technology is a core component of contemporary teaching. It requires both an understanding of pedagogical approaches and the affordances of technology. Learning Environments’ skilled learning specialists are able to assist in these areas.
Teaching, learning and assessment with technology
Teaching with technology can enhance the student experience. Technology has become an expected way students will access subject content, subjects messaging, online activities, assessment details and assessment submission. Navigating how best to use technology to meet students needs and expectations is where Learning Environments is here to help.
Technology enhanced learning (TEL) refers to the technologies and methods used to solve educational teaching problems and achieve teaching and learning goals. Learning Environments, in consultation with Melbourne Centre Study of Higher Education (MCSHE) and others within the University, have created a TEL framework to guide the use of teaching with technology to meet educational needs. Based in research the TEL framework can be used as self-guided aid or a starter for consultations about subject redesign with Learning Environments.
Learning Environments has a skilled team of learning designers and teaching and learning consultants. This team are available to consult with you on technology options for your subject’s learning design, assessment needs or any enhancement you are considering to improve students' learning outcomes or your own teaching experience.
- Teaching and learning advice on converting subjects to fully online
- Moving to more student centred and active learning approaches in the LMS
- Redesign of your LMS subjects for an intensive delivery, including video in your subject
- Tailored responses to meeting your online assessment needs.
Learning Environments provides support for the writing of Learning and Teaching Initiatives (LTI) applications, as well as projects that have been funded under FlexAP.
