How does ACU define innovation in technology enhanced learning (TEL) and teaching?
At ACU, innovation in TEL means using technology to support the implementation of new ideas or practices to create enhanced learning and teaching
The following are considered in the scope of innovation in TEL:
- Using an external tool in a way that provides opportunity for new practices in learning and teaching OR
- Using existing ACU tools in unique and novel ways that enhance learning and teaching
A helping hand for your innovation project
So you have an idea for innovating in learning and teaching using technology?
Consider these three questions to get started:
What learning and teaching need do you have that you think will be supported by technology?
Why do you want to use it? What are your pedagogical aims? What problem are you seeking to address?
How will learning and teaching in your unit be enhanced by using the technology you have in mind?
What type of support do you need?
Moderate support requirement
