ICT: Students and Technology Briefing!

NUS launches a new briefing looking at technology-enhanced learning titled ICT: Students and Technology!

New technologies not only give an opportunity to refresh or reassess teaching methods, but also act as a starting point for more flexible, personal and improved learning environments. As the student population is increasingly diversifying to include a much greater number of part-time, distance, home and work-based learners, technology really has the potential to significantly improve or enhance the learning experience for these cohorts.

 
To provide some further information and discuss e-learning, ICT and teaching and learning we have produced a detailed briefing which looks at the following topics:  
 
·         Technology-enhanced learning;
·         e-assessment & e-submission;
·         Campaigning for technology and ICT;
·         A summary of the findings and recommendations of the NUS student perspective on technology report (2010)
