The Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team supports staff in using a range of tools and technologies to enable effective e-pedagogy, most notably Moodle (our VLE), Mahara (our e-Portfolio) and our Media Library. The TEL team is part of the Academic Development Directorate.

Our team is currently a small one but we're a friendly bunch; so if you ever need any specialist advice or just want a chat about learning technologies, e-pedagogies and ways in which you can harness the benefits of technology for learning, feel free to email, call or just pop in to our office in Temple Hall for a chat.

We're located in the corner or Quad East/Quad North/Temple (TWM11), which unfortunately may be difficult to access for anyone with mobility issues, so please let us know if you would prefer us to come to you, or to meet in an alternative location.

You can email us at TEL@yorksj.ac.uk, or Tweet us @YSJTEL
