Technology in Higher Education – best practice, skills and the student offer

Westminster Higher Education Forum

Guest of Honour: Dr Ellie Clewlow, Head of Learning and Teaching, HEFCE

This seminar comes as the use of technology across Higher Education becomes increasingly prolific and will assess its potential to improve the offer for students and to enhance a range of processes across campus.

Sessions will examine how the perceptions of the available technological facilities, and use of technology in teaching, affect applicants’ choice of university as well as how technology enhanced learning (TEL) can improve student experience, assist those falling behind, improve retention and improve students’ employability by helping broaden their digital skills.

Further sessions will look at how universities can ensure that staff and students alike have the necessary skills to create and participate in blended learning, and latest thinking on the challenges for implementation and established campus culture.
