Happy New Year from the TEL team!
We are looking forward to another exciting year ahead. We have been planning training sessions, webinars, workshops and more for 2020. We will continue to develop our webpages, where you can find information about the tools we support and how you can use them in your teaching. We have created some guides for these tools to help get you started and will continue to build on these guides in 2020. If you can think of any other guides you would like us to create, please let us know in the comments below.
And don’t forget, you can subscribe to our blog to get notifications of new posts as they come in.
Getting your Moodle Pages Ready for Semester 2
Are your Semester 2 Moodle pages ready? See our Getting Ready for Semester 2 webpages for a quick checklist on how to set up your pages as quickly as possible. If you have questions along the way, we are running a number of drop-ins during January.
If you would like advice on how to activate your modules, import content, or would like to talk to us about using technology in your teaching, come and have a chat. You do not need to make an appointment.

Cake and Conversation
The Learning and Teaching Team have recently teamed up with Technology Enhanced Learning to lead a monthly series where we look at some of the big issues being discussed in Higher Education today.
Conversation and cake is a regular gathering of academics and like-minded colleagues to discuss a topical paper, publication or report.
The next Cake and Conversation will take place on Monday 3 February in CD 003 and is on the subject of wellbeing. Take a look in the most recent Campus Connections to vote on the next paper we will read. If you are interested in attending, please get in touch with us and register your interest.
