Earlier this week, colleagues from across the University came together for our annual celebration of learning and teaching.  It was an action pack day. The morning consisted of  presentations on the Common Good Curriculum, digital learning across all three schools, a live link to the ALC in Mauritius and our key note speaker Professor Mark Stubbs,  Head of Learning and Research Technologies,  MMU.

Mark’s presentation on how he and his team have wrapped their learning technology provision around the student experience was inspiring to everyone.  Mark illustrated how having a co-ordinated, appropriately led and funded approach to change can make visible difference to the student experience.

Central to this change has been support from senior management, and team led by someone like Mark who  understands “the business” of learning and teaching.  Of course staff have had a huge input into this change too. Mark was very honest about the challenges they have faced, and it was pleasing to hear that they are now going to focusing on the staff experience more.   A recording of his presentation will be available soon, but in the meantime you can view his slides below.

Many thanks to all of our colleagues who contributed to the event.

A summary of the day from twitter activity is also available via this storify.
