Mahi – Projects
Our projects typically engage with one of three areas: blended and online learning, learning environments, and emerging technologies. We also design and deliver professional development, training and support for staff with digital tools and learning environments across these three areas.
The Digital Learning Team works predominantly within the Faculty of Education and Social Work. However, we are also available for University-wide and external contract work where the activity contributes to the faculty’s strategic vision.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs, opportunities or challenges in order to develop project ideas – simply contact our team to get the conversation started.
Blended and online learning
We work with teaching staff to develop courses for any level of online or blended delivery – from predominantly face-to-face classes with some online elements, right through to wholly online teaching.
We support experimentation with, and development of, learning and teaching spaces on our campuses. We lead the faculty’s Collaborative Active Learning Spaces (CALS) project to support new pedagogical approaches using technology-enhanced, interactive learning spaces.
We continue to explore the potential for transformative formal and informal learning environments, as well as their relationship to blended learning experiences.
We support the faculty to explore emerging educational technologies and platforms. We engage with contemporary research and examples of good practice in order to experiment with, and support lecturers in, the integration of innovative pedagogies and tools into programmes and courses.
We also use this exploratory role as part of our contribution to faculty strategy, direction and planning in areas such as digital pedagogies, digital literacies, learning technologies and learning environments.
