Technology-Enhanced Learning Webinar Series

IT Services will be running a series of Technology-Enhanced Learning online webinars from now to late Michaelmas Term to help staff design and develop their Blackboard modules.

These sessions are designed to complement Academic Practice’s 'Adapting our Teaching for Learning Online' module. The webinars focus on providing academics with pedagogically sound guidance on the use of these technologies in their teaching practice. You can attend any webinar, without registering, and sessions will be recorded and made available on this website and the Staff Help section within Blackboard. Some sessions will be repeated based on demand.


There will be different strands which will combine 1-hour webinars, shorter ‘Quick Looks’ at specific features and drop-in webinars. The five strands are:

  1. Designing Your Blackboard Module (introductory webinars on using Blackboard)
  2. Delivering Live & Recorded Online Sessions (introductory & advanced webinars covering technologies such as Collaborate & Panopto)
  3. Online Assessment (webinars covering online tests, group assignments, Turnitin in Blackboard & managing your Grade Centre)
  4. Social Learning (covering reflective journals, blogs & discussion forums)
  5. Software-Specific & Advanced Sessions (software such as MyTrinityApps and advanced features in Blackboard, Panopto & Collaborate)
