Full details on each workshop and booking can be found at our booking site linked to here, look for sessions suffixed with ‘(e-learning summer school)’.
We will also be running our VITAL introduction for administrators session, bookable from the same page, on Wednesday 11th June in the afternoon.
The sessions will generally be a mix of hands-on practical work, application to your learning and teaching, and case studies of practice at the University. The introductory workshop is suitable for staff who have not used VITAL or Blackboard at another institution at all – if you are already familiar with the system then this session will be too basic. The main pre-requisite for the other summer school sessions is that you are familiar with VITAL and using its main facilities, but please contact us if you want to discuss the suitability of any of the sessions. You are welcome to book on as many sessions as you wish, although we would ask that if you find yourself unable to attend to unenrol as soon as possible.
