The Technology Enhanced Learning Handbook 2015-18 (PDF, 0.5MB) is designed to guide staff in the considered and appropriate application of technology to enhance student engagement in learning, teaching, and assessment at York St John (YSJ).
Encompassing contemporary themes in technology enhanced learning and epedagogy, this Handbook should act as a reference for good practice and developmental approaches to technology enhanced learning, and assist staff to meaningfully incorporate technology into the learning, teaching and assessment approach of their modules in ways that are underpinned by our new Academic Strategy and current enhancement activities such as Graduate Attributes & the Curriculum for Student Success.
Through engagement with this TEL Handbook and active consideration of what and how you use technology to facilitate learning and teaching, you will be aligning your practice to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). The UKPSF underpins a sector wide approach to ensuring the quality of teaching and learning support, and this includes the expectation that staff are committed to continuing professional development (CPD) and evaluation of their pedagogic practice. This is important as evidence of engagement in developing technology enhanced learning can help staff gain recognition as Fellows of the Higher Education Academy through the YSJ CPD Framework, ‘Recognising Academic Practice’, which is aligned to the UKPSF.
