This symposium is an opportunity for the UC e-Lab to share and celebrate current research and development so we can learn more about the breadth and depth of e-learning research at UC and beyond.

The theme is “Technology Enhanced Learning Spaces”, which we see as relating widely to all kinds of learning places and spaces including virtual and online blends.  The event will also be a celebration and acknowledgement of Distinguished Professor Niki Davis and her contribution to the Lab as its founding Director and leader.

Highlights include opening plenary by Professor Una Cunningham from Stockholm University who is speaking on Interlinked physical and virtual learning spaces as well as 13 Gasta presentations (short concise 5 min presentations) by students, staff and collaborators (including international expert on digital addiction Dr Olatz Fernandez Lopez from Monash University). It will be a thought provoking event with lots of opportunity for connection and discussion.

Technology Enabled Learning Facility (TELF): A service for Lecturers

The Technology Enabled Learning Facility (TELF) is a service offered by the e-Learning team to support lecturers in the use of learning technologies.

James Hight Room 502 is equipped with a lectern and other technologies typically found in UC teaching spaces (lectern, document camera, Echo369 lecture capture etc.).

Lecturers use this facility to:

  • Practice using and/or receive training in the use of the technologies found in UC teaching spaces (lectern, document camera, Echo369 lecture capture etc.).
  • Create teaching materials (video recordings, narrated PowerPoint presentations etc.).
  • Teach classes and conduct tutorials to students at a distance using web conferencing (using Adobe Connect, Zoom or Skype for Business).

If you wish to use this facility it can be booked via online room bookings (search for Puaka James Hight Library 502 TELF).
