Once again this semester FLIE will be running weekly face-to-face drop-ins in FG04 to support staff with some of the digital tools you have access to for teaching and learning. We’re focusing on a different theme each week so bring along your questions in person to FG04 on the following days and times:
Preparing your Units for Semester 2
If you’d like some guidance on getting your units set up for Semester 2, maybe you just need a quick reminder of how to copy content from other units or copy Panopto lecture recordings across, then pop along on Tuesday 10th January 2-4pm or Thursday 12th January 1-3pm and someone will be available in the room to answer your questions and demonstrate Brightspace to you.
|Date and time
|Tues 31st Jan 13.00-14.30
|Attendance checkin with Jisc Learning Analytics
If you’re teaching L0 or L4 students this semester, this session will serve as a reminder of how to create and capture attendance online using the Data Explorer platform as part of the extended pilot.
|Wed 8th Feb 13.30-14.30
|Panopto lecture capture
Would you like some help with using Panopto for recording? are you confused by which camera or microphone you should choose? Come and practice in the room with an LT on hand.
|Tues 14th Feb 12.00-13.30
|Using Brightspace Checklists
Have you used the Checklist tool yet? Checklists are a great tool for unit orientation, scaffolding learning and keeping students on track with larger projects.
|Tues 21st Feb 13.00-14.30
Did you know there are template discussion boards set up on every unit so you can amend them for your own purposes? The Discussion tool is a good way to break up content, create discussions or build a resource

|Mentimeter audience response system
Would you like to know more about using Mentimeter to add interactive elements in real time to your teaching sessions, both online or in the classroom, and how it can also be used by students?
|Tues 7th Mar 13.00-14.30
|Brightspace online Badges and Awards
Have you thought about using online awards in Brightspace? are digital badges something you would like to trial with your students this semester? Come and find out more.

|Brightspace quiz tool
Bring along any questions you have about the quiz tool in Brightspace, its functionality and how you might utilise online quizzes for assessment in your subject area.
