Technology Enhanced Active Learning Festival

What is TEALfest?

Following the successful inaugral TEALFest in May 2020, the LDCU is pleased to announce the second technology enhanced active learning (TEAL) festival.

TEALfest is an online festival for sharing technology enhanced active learning practice, research, ideas and experiences.

Throughout the week we will have a series of events from colleagues and guest speakers.


The theme for TEALfest 2021 is Beyond the bubble. We will be expanding our horizons and looking for inspiration outside of our own practice, disciplines, Warwick and the UK. Learn more about TEALfest in Dr Robert O'Toole's video.

Monday 10th May to Friday 14th May 2021.
