In September 2014 we ran an inaugral Technology Enhanced Learning Festival (TELFest). Now a biannual event TELFest runs in January and September. The festival has been designed to offer help, guidance and support to anyone at the University of Sheffield who wishes to develop their delivery of teaching. Whether you are new to using technology to enhance learning or have a great deal of experience, we have developed the festival to ensure that you walk away both inspired and equipped with the skills required to enhance your current practice.

Throughout each day at TELFest, we also run drop in sessions, where members of the central Technology Enhanced Learning Team will be available to answer specific questions that you may have, no matter how basic or complex they seem.

As well as this, we run a variety of scheduled workshops, examples include:
  • Introduction to MOLE
  • Using Social Media to Enhance Teaching and Learning
  • Mobile Learning
  • Online Assessment and Feedback
  • Multimedia to Enhance Learning and Teaching
  • E-portfolios
  • Flipped Learning
And that's not all, during lunch you can participate in panel discussions, round table discussion and presentations from colleagues who are engaged with the use of technology to enhance learning in their practice. 

Next TELFest: 12-14th January 2015
Where: Hicks Building

"It is important to meet the needs of the 21st century student, by using technology effectively to enhance students learning practices helping them to engage more with their education. It is by keeping at the fore front of such learning and teaching developments that we will improve study skills and degree outcomes of our students'."
