Working on the web (staff workshop)

Posted on November 12th, 2010 by Paul Stainthorp

This is another in the collection of staff workshops that I’m running with Joss Winn of CERD and David Young from the University Research Office. This one has its own wiki page on CERD’s Learning Lab site.

Working on the web: Learning to use new web technologies and tools for teaching and research

This session will provide an introduction to a variety of freely available web technologies and tools that can enrich research, teaching and learning.

This workshop aims to help academics make better use of the web in their teaching and research. In this hour-long session we will show you how free and easy-to-use web-based tools such as RSS, social bookmarking, blogs and wikis can support your teaching and your students’ learning. Follow up, more in-depth classroom-based support is available through the Centre for Educational Research and Development.

Staff from all disciplines are encouraged to attend

This workshop aims to help academics improve their research by making better use of the web

We aim to:

  • Learn about different ways that the web can support student collaboration
  • Improve the way you observe and assess contribution to group work
  • Understand new ways of communicating, supporting and engaging with your students
  • Prepare your students for new and emerging ways of working on the web
  • Understand the benefits and manage the risks of teaching and learning in public
  • Improve the way you search for funding information
  • Improve the way you receive and organise information about research and funding
  • Find out about ways to make research collaboration, networking and manuscript production with others more effective and efficient
  • Find out how to connect and find others with shared research interests

We’re running one workshop a month between now and May 2011. University of Lincoln staff can book a place via the Staff Learning & Development Portal site.
