I presented the findings of the HEA’s “Changing the Learning Landscape” (CLL) funded project at the ALT-Conference in Warwick. The presentation was well received. Fiona Harvey and Tamsyn Smith (University of Southampton) attended my session which was great because University of Huddersfield’s iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club was inspired by Southampton’s iPad (& alternative devices) Coffee Club.
I am pleased to announce that my 2014 ALT-Conference abstract has been accepted which means that I will be in Coventry, at the University of Warwick, this September. This is an output of my HEA funded project..
The third and final iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club was held last week and 10 colleagues attended it. I would like to thank the HEA for the funds to organise these three sessions and there are plans to continue the coffee club sessions next academic year based on attendees’ positive feedback.
Colleagues liked the informal and relaxed atmosphere of the sessions which provided them the opportunity to learn from their peers and from the facilitator
“A great informal get together and opportunity to discuss ways in which to maximise the use of the iPad.”
“I liked the informal and relaxed nature of them, and the two-way flow of ideas.”
“Communication with other tablet users is good to get ideas for better downloads.”
