I interviewed four colleagues about the iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club and they were happy for me to use clips of their interviews to promote the Coffee Club. These audio clips reveal that the Coffee Club at the University of Huddersfield is having a positive impact on colleagues.
I facilitated a Coffee Club session last Tuesday which 14 colleagues attended. The attendees were mainly academics, subject librarians and learning technologists. I decided to do something different during this session. Coffee Club attendees were given paper slips and asked to write down their three favourite apps which they use for work-related purposes other than Mail, Calendar and Dropbox.

I facilitated another iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club session yesterday; the third one for this academic year. 15 colleagues attended the session. Some of the apps mentioned at the event included:
Video Enhanced Observation (VEO) – teaching observation app developed by Newcastle University staff
Paper – drawing app
Timer+ – timer app which can be used for presentations
Scannable – scanning app
Camscanner – another scanning app
Edtech Teacher – iPad teaching video tutorial app for schools but some tutorials could be customised for University teaching.
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.
