About

The Learning Innovation Unit (LIU) supports innovation in teaching and learning practices in the Faculty of Environment and Technology (FET) at UWE Bristol. Our expertise is here to help lecturers in FET with the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of technologies and pedagogical approaches to support their teaching work.

We are based in 3Q64 and FET staff are welcome to drop in any time to see us.

This includes:

  • making most effective use of Blackboard and other technologies provided by UWE;
  • identifying and piloting new technologies;
  • building interactivity and active learning into your teaching;
  • making effective use of multimedia and social media;
  • recording your lectures;
  • assessing and providing feedback to learners;
  • film and multimedia production service.

About Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)

What is Technology Enhanced Learning? For answers to this question try visiting the article on this website titled ‘What is Technology Enhanced Learning?‘ or watching the film below produced by the LIU. The film was presented at the Faculty’s 1st Teaching and Learning Conference on 22 January 2014, and followed by a Q & A session to the Expert Panel. It gives a flavour of some of the TEL in FET.
