TEL me more – December

The Solitude of WinterDecember’s TEL Me More was attended by several people and rather than presentations a general discussion was held.

We talked about media based scenarios which can be used for formative and summative assessment. For example we had a demonstration of the Substance misuse videos that were created for Health and Social Care students by the TEL team.  These videos allow students to explore carefully constructed scenarios that help them build up an understanding of a case study.

We also discussed a range of apps that could be used to support learning and teaching such as OneNote and Sli.do. The TEL team will be promoting a wide range of apps in the New Year, look out for our ‘Appy Mondays campaign.

This month’s TEL Me More also coincided with our first College based TEL Me More session, where Socrative was demonstrated by an academic in the College of Life and Natural Science, who had been using it with her students after seeing it demonstrated at a previous TEL event. Socrative was used to poll the group on a range of TEL related topics as part of the demonstration on how to set it up and was then use to tie in an important question raised by the College Dean as part of Dean’s Question time.
