This practical and informative workshop explores how to use collaborative tools to achieve greater levels of student satisfaction, engagement and retention and enhance the communication between learners and their lecturers and tutors.
Students today have increasingly high expectations about how technology can support their studies. Many will come to your institution already armed with their own web-enabled devices and fluent in the use of social networking.
The workshop is aimed at anyone working in an educational organisation, looking for ideas, solutions and ways in which they can deliver a fully supported, student experience to remember. During the day you'll examine case studies, try out a range of tools, explore the pitfalls (& how to avoid them) when using collaborative technologies. You'll leave the workshop with new skills, tools and ideas to apply in your institution!
