I feel we need better communication channels for the Learning Technologists as we are in key positions in our departments. We seem to have been missed off the VLE consultation process till the last minute and today an academic colleague has forwarded this to me.
I'm getting all this information via back channels and feel we are out of the loop.
We write to invite you to the formal launch of the Digital Commons on Monday 18 April, 11am - 1pm in the John Carr Design Suite, Portobello by the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Learning and Teaching, Professor Wyn Morgan.
As part of plans to develop a greater sense of engagement, the Digital Commons is space to inspire, provoke and support you in realising your personal and departmental ambitions in creating, maintaining and developing a great learning and teaching experience for students.
You may just want to network with like-minded colleagues for an hour or so over a sandwich. Or you may have a concrete project that you want to work on, with all the ancillary support and experience you need right beside you. This could be anything from creating new learning resources for your students to adapting a module to be taught in different ways.
The launch will showcase what the Digital Commons is all about and how we'll be working with you. It'll be followed in May with a seminar which will be an opportunity to get you thinking and networking about learning and teaching challenges.
If you plan to attend, please register by 13 April via this link: http://goo.gl/forms/kTdWYfuvX3
If you have any questions, please email Kim Marwood, Academic and Learning Services, at: email@example.com or call 0114 2221351
We're really looking forward to working with you.
With best wishes,
Dr Christopher Stokes and Professor Marie Kinsey
Cross-Cutting Directors of Digital Learning
Provocation. Inspiration. Collaboration
