Here’s wishing everyone at HYMS a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the HYMS eLearning team. It’s been a busy year for the team with many changes, and we hope that we have been able to make some positive improvements throughout HYMS.
Our Changing the Learning Landscape (CLL) project has gone from strength to strength this year. We managed to secure a second round of consultancy support from the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE) and we have used this expertise to focus on staff development and training, with the intention of providing better support, whilst also empowering staff to be able to make better use of Blackboard and improve the student experience.
Armed with the recommendations from this consultancy the eLearning team have been busily redesigning the range of training opportunities that we offer, and will be running the first of these new training sessions in January. To support our new face-to-face training we are also developing some online resources to support both our “Introduction to Blackboard and Technology Enhanced Learning at HYMS” and “Solving Problems with Technology Enhanced Learning” sessions. The intention is that these self-paced courses will provide much needed access to eLearning training for those members of staff who struggle to attend face-to-face sessions, or as a refresher for those may not have regular need to use Blackboard.
As always if any of you have ELearning related queries don’t hesitate to contact us on the email below we are always happy to help.
