This presentation describes the development of Teaching and Learning in a Digital Age (TELEDA); a short course delivered through the teacher education portfolio which is informed by three of the aims of the UoL Digital Education Plan:
‘……promote the wider and more creative use of the VLE and other technologies for enhancing and enriching students’ education.’
Promote the use and reuse of OER
Develop digital literacies of staff and students

TELEDA repositions staff as students and offers practical experience of a range of Blackboard tools while introducing the principles of open education, online design, communication, collaboration and assessment. The presentation will suggest an emphasis on e-teaching, as well as e-learning, is necessary to enhance the student learning experience through virtual learning environments. Through TELEDA, staff are relocated as students online and encouraged to adopt an ‘Activity Based Content’ (ABC) model of learning rather than ‘passive consumption’ of text and presentation slides. TELEDA is being developed through my Action Research based doctorate and the Festival will be a welcome opportunity to share progress, data and early stages of analysis.
