TEL Strategy 2017-2021

The digital experience of staff and students is central to delivering academic excellence, student employability and a high quality student experience.  The University of Derby's TEL Strategy (2017-2021) will support staff and students to develop their digital capabilities and transform the digital learning experience for all our students.

"TEL me more"

The lunchtime ‘TEL me more’ sessions provide an opportunity for academic staff to tell others about the way they have used learning technology to support learning and teaching. The informal sessions are run on the last Wednesday of every month and are also supported by the TEL me more online community in Course Resources (Blackboard), as well as our Twitter feed @TELmemoreuod

Staff Development

TEL are available to run staff development events for individuals, programme teams, subject teams and wider groups. Take a look at our Staff development menu for a list of the types of sessions we can run, but we can also create bespoke sessions based on your requirements. You can find our scheduled staff development events within Learning Enhancement’s Academic Practice Programme.
