The Faculty of Science and Technology are going to provide iPADs to all level 5 and 6 students as well as their staff. With a budget in excess of £1.5M this project will include a staff development programme with aim of helping staff to develop in and out of class approaches to using the iPADs to transform learning and teaching approaches. There will also be a bank of iPADs to be used by level 3 and level 4 students.
This project aligns well with the project to emphasise Blackboard as the online space for current students and the work to physically develop classrooms to support more flexible learning an detaching approaches.
The project has a website with more information here.
