TEL Recommends

Taking the Digital Discovery tool really made me aware of the importance of work-life balance and encouraged me to make improvements on my own digital wellbeing and also that of others too. (Suzy)

Twitter has really helped me develop my own personal learning network and is a great tool for organising and curating content. If you don't know how to get started, the 10 days of Twitter course is a great way of learning Twitter from scratch, or you could try out the Twitter Essential Training course on Lynda.com (Phil)

Turn off email notifications to help you focus on tasks and reduce stress over the working day. (Jo)
