The Extended Classroom (EC) toolset is a suite of technologies that can be used to facilitate and promote good teaching practices and extend your teaching and the learning experience for students both in-class and online. This means better engagement and an improved learning experience. The EC guidance explains the main affordances of these technologies, highlighting the tools in use at Warwick and the support available.
Recipes are a collated list of methods for implementing specific teaching practices. These offer achievable step-by-step solutions helping overcome some of the challenges that face academics in core areas of teaching - supporting assessment and feedback, design and development, delivery in-class or online, student learning and projects, and student module evaluation.
The University of Warwick provides excellent research infrastructure technology including software, hardware and support. The Academic Technology team provides several support options for researchers.
If you are scoping a bid for a research grant that includes digital methods or digital outputs, contact us to help shape your bid for a greater chance of success. We have particular specialism in supporting humanities and social sciences projects. Find out more about the Digital Humanities service.
If your project requires surveys, we can provide support for paper-based and online surveys. We can advise you on your best option. Find out more about the Surveys service.
If you need a survey we can build it for you and provide end-to-end support, whether you need to run the survey online using Qualtrics software, on paper, or both.
If your research project requires specialist online systems such as databases or maps, you could use project funding to commission us to codesign and build your solutions, or to find you someone who can.
We can develop your skills in Qualtrics surveys and in digital humanities including the Omeka online exhibition tool. We can offer you 1:1 support, small group sessions and bespoke training. The digital humanities service also works closely with the Library to provide Research Data Management training.
