Enhancing your conventional teaching with digital technology

This graphic shows the digital tools we support in MIC:  from all the aspects of Moodle which can add to your teaching, to Mahara, Turnitin, BigBlueButton, Microsoft 365 tools, and more.

The TEL Staff Support page is full of guides to help you to use these digital tools.

The graphic is arranged according to the six learning types, as referenced by University College London's ABC Curriculum Design method.

The ABC curriculum design method addresses the need to develop richer learning designs for blended learning and includes elements of the Connected Curriculum: a Framework for research-based education.

At LEAD we run ABC workshops for module teams who are designing or redesigning a module.

Contact us at LEAD@mic.ul.ie for further information on any of these digital tools, on ABC workshops, or any other queries you have in relation to using technology in your online teaching.
