PGA Technology Enhanced Learning

Are you interested in developing your use of technology to support teaching and learning?

This is an opportunity to work on a TEL project, gain recognition through the HEA and a Postgraduate Award in Technology Enhanced Learning.

The next cohort for the PGA in Technology Enhanced Learning will be running later this Spring. There will be an introduction workshop where you can find out more on Thursday 21st March 1-3pm. You can book your place here.

Further information about course dates will be available shortly.

Please contact us if you would like any further information - PGATEL@warwick.ac.uk

PGA TEL is a part-time, practice-based programme, which supports participants as they carry out a Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) project. Participants can choose to undertake the course as unaccredited professional development, or can enrol onto the Postgraduate Award (30 CATS), successful completion of which also awards Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy and an option to work towards Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. This is a flexible course and can be completed online and/or face to face.

APP TEL is open to all staff at the University of Warwick who have a role in teaching, development or learning support.

Please note: as the programme is project based, participants will need to have the opportunity to develop a technology enhanced learning project. If you are unsure that your role offers this potential, please contact us to discuss your situation.

The programme is comprised of a series of:

  • workshops – introducing the core concepts and underpinning pedagogical theory, as well as providing the opportunity to engage with a range of tools and technologies and discuss these face-to-face and online;
  • structured online activities - designed to encourage reflection at key stages of project design and implementation these will give participants the opportunity to exchange ideas with fellow participants as well as developing critical reflections on approaches adopted from both teacher and learner perspectives. There will also be the opportunity to engage with a variety of different online tools and consider how they could be used in teaching and learning and share experiences in an online space.
  • action learning sets - working with colleagues focusing on peer support around the development of your project.

This course offers a flexible delivery mode allowing participants to choose between online and face-to-face workshops, blending their engagement to fit with existing commitments. The core content covered in the workshops is consistent across the two delivery modes. In addition, all participants will be required to engage with the assessed online activities, and encouraged to engage with further discussion and debate in the online course space.

A key part of the course is working together to share and explore different ideas and approaches, and supporting each other through discussion and debate through face-to-face discussions and online debates that take place as part of these workshops. Based on students’ prior experiences (particularly when studying online) we strongly encourage participants to organise themselves into smaller study groups, meeting regularly to continue these discussions either face-to-face or online.

Participants will also be invited to join a series of Participant Liaison Groups (PLGs) over lunch, which provide participants with the opportunity to share their views on the course, discuss their experiences and consider how these might impact on their own approaches to use of technology enhanced learning.

The course also provides scheduled drop-in sessions and development time for participants to work on their projects.

The programme is designed to be completed within 6 to 8 months depending upon the pathway that you have taken.
