I was very pleased to be at the launch of LITEbox today; a new initiative from the University of Bath that is ‘…aiming to provide opportunities for staff and students to learn, share, explore and develop new and existing technologies for learning, teaching and research.’
It is doing this in three ways:
- space and technology development
- skills development
- knowledge exchange
We were given demonstrations of how the newly equipped teaching spaces (of which there will be more) are being used to help support collaborative learning, and how VIA Collage can be used to support students on group projects share their work when using different devices.
We also saw examples of apps for teaching and learning, created by staff and students with the App Factory and the ease of their production.
LITEbox will be bringing to light more examples of the use of technology in teaching, learning and research very soon, and also supporting new developments, so watch this space*!
