Technology Enhanced Learning


The Curriculum Development team offers a range of events for staff and students. For information and booking details for upcoming events please see the events calendar, or the list on the right of this page. For past events, including recordings and supporting materials where available, please see below. Regularly scheduled events include:

E-Learning Forums

The e-learning forum (ELF) aims to promote and aid the development of e-learning at Kent, in line with the University e-Learning Strategy. It facilitates the exchange of information and ideas on current e-learning developments at Kent between Schools, students and senior management. Schools and students are given the opportunity to provide feedback on e-learning developments and the provision of e-learning. In addition the e-learning forum provides an opportunity for discussion of e-learning and learning technology issues, including possible research projects.

All staff and students are welcome, and we would encourage Schools to send at least one staff representative to share its collective views.

Sessions take place in the UELT Seminar Room. For bookings please email cpdbookings@kent.ac.uk

E-learning Summer School


The Summer School is a two-day event offering an immersive environment for staff to experience all of the tools and technologies available to them at the University and to engage in wider discussions about technology-enhanced learning in higher education. The Summer School operates like a mini conference with invited guest speakers, parallel workshop sessions and interactive discussion groups. There are opportunities to network with colleagues and to share practice. This event is open to all staff, regardless of whether you currently use technology in your teaching or not. It may also be of interest to new staff.
