Imperial College London has recently hosted an event at its Digital Learning Hub to showcase how technology can revolutionise education for both staff and students. Software and hardware that are being used to deliver assessment were featured on the event while interactive learning techniques and digital visualisations were provided by teams from all faculties and library sciences.
The event follows a report showing that the college community and some of the world’s leading employers are looking for more interactive and authentic teaching approaches, materials and facilities.
Moira Sarsfield, Principal Learning Technologist in the Faculty of Natural Sciences, said: "The event was a great opportunity to showcase some of the exciting innovations, tools and teaching techniques that have been developed as part of reviewing the curriculum at Imperial and delivering transformational teaching projects.
"My own team highlighted why it’s a really good idea to encourage students to get involved in producing some learning materials. The team also talked about enhancing assessment practice.
"Overall the event was very well attended and it was great to meet with colleagues from across Imperial in conversations about ways to improve teaching, learning and assessment for our students."
