Whether you have a definite idea of how you want to use learning technology and innovate your teaching, see the potential for enhancement but need guidance and ideas, or even doubt the use of technology in education but think that things could be improved, just come and talk to us!
LTI are here to support all teaching staff at the LSE. We work with colleagues and the wider learning technology community to ensure we understand the purpose and uses of learning technology and explore innovative approaches to teaching and learning. We can work with you to test out new approaches to teaching in a safe and supportive environment, implementing them in your specific context to address the needs and expectations of you and your students.
We provide day-to-day guidance with LSE-supported technologies such as Moodle and Turnitin and can help you with many more. If we don’t know it yet, we’ll learn with you! Visit our website for self-help guidance or drop us an email. We also organise training sessions and events on specific tools and approaches, open to any level. Have a look at what’s happening in Lent Term.
We evaluate LSE projects aimed at enhancing teaching and learning, from small to large scale, and share the results with the community. We keep an eye on what is being done in the learning technology community, what works and what doesn’t. We try it ourselves. We test it with willing staff, roll it out, evaluate it again, and promote it. Check out our reports and papers on e-assessment, learning spaces, lecture capture and many more on our website and LSE Research Online.
We promote good practice and celebrate teachers who “lead and live innovative teaching”, namely LSE Innovators. We learn from them and disseminate their ideas.
Finally, we offer dedicated help and support from senior members of the team and funding for your innovative teaching and learning ideas, from the time you come to us with your idea to the completion of your project. We will help you evaluate and disseminate it. We do this through our SPARK! grant scheme. Visit our funding pages to learn more and find inspiration in reading about past projects.
