Technology Enhanced Learning Courses

The Learning Enhancement team provides training courses in the use of learning technology and in particular Myplace. 

Current provision includes:

  • Getting started with Myplace: an introduction to setting up a course using Myplace, and gives an overview of commonly used tools and features.
  • Myplace Upgrade Workshops: presents a summary of the new features available in Myplace following recent Myplace upgrade. Following the presentation and questions participants will have the opportunity to work on their own classes with support. 
  • Teaching and Learning Online (TALON): an opportunity for teaching staff to experience being an online student while at the same time exploring the implications and opportunities of teaching and learning in Myplace. 
  • 'How To.....' Sessions: designed to provide staff with practical input on a specific teaching / learning matter focusing on using online and blended approaches (offered in partnership with OSDU).

We are happy to provide bespoke training sessions. Please email us on with requests.
