So much has changed in terms of what we understand about modalities and digital education and we are keen to capture and share colleagues’ thoughts, ideas and innovations in a range of ways. In addition to the more formal channels, the Digital Education and Arena teams will be running a regular series of informal sharing and discussion events. These will be a mix of themed in-person, online and hybrid events where the emphasis is not on presentation but talking, sharing or brainstorming ideas. Sessions may be experimental, speculative, discursive and/ or evaluative. Whether colleagues are experienced or complete novices, it is the coming together that is important. Whether you tend towards the sceptical or the evangelical or (more likely) sit somewhere between, you will be welcome.

In this session we want to discuss how mobile phones can be used- by students and those teaching them. We invite you to come and consider some ideas, try a few things for yourselves and share your own ideas. Included in the session will be: 

  •  Polling  
  • Text chat précis 
  • My TA is a QR code! 
  • Edupunk videos
  • Digital flashcards revision tool 

If you can, please bring your own smart phone.
