On the week of 14 – 18 July, SHU is running this open online blended course about using smart phones and tablet PCs to enhance and transform teaching and learning. The course is running concurrently at other universities over the 5 day period and uses social media, video scenarios, and face-to-face peer-enhanced activities . BYOD4L focuses on:
During the week there will be face-to-face events each day (Cantor 9012 or 9221) between 1pm and 2pm and online social media-based chats with people from all of the participating universities between 8pm and 9pm.
This is a great opportunity to find out about how you could use mobile devices and social media in your own practice. The course is designed to be supportive and previous experience of using these technologies is not required to take part.
