Learning Technology Team of the Year Award
Information Services Group was recognised at the Association for Learning Technology awards this week, winning Learning Technology Team of the Year for our work on lecture recording.
The team who won the award were drawn from across the professional services areas of the University and included learning technologists, AV specialists, project management, academic research, policy expertise, communications expertise and expertise from the University Timetabling Unit. 40 students were also included as part of the team for their help in supporting the rollout of lecture recording in teaching spaces at the start of term.
Delivering a change like lecture recording at scale has required the team to consider the wider contexts in which the technology will be used and to address all of these as well as delivering technology on the ground. In making the award, the judges commented:
Although lecture capture is an area of interest to many universities, what was most impressive about this entry was that it provides an exemplar for the implementation of any learning technology. The careful consideration of the perspectives of educators and students, coupled with a practical and responsive implementation makes for an effective model. The open ethos and sharing approach of the project for the benefit of the wider sector is also excellent practice.
