What should I do first? 

We recommend that you:  

  1. look at the options available and read the documentation provided, then   
  2. discuss ideas with your programme team.  Include your Ed Tech Champion who might also have some ideas and will be familiar with all the Learning and Teaching Development team’s support resources. Think about what will work best for you as a team and for your learners. 

If you require further support, please nominate one person from your team to create a case in Service and liaise with the Learning and Teaching Development team. One of our Learning and Teaching Specialists will be assigned to support your team as soon as possible.
