Lunchtime Learning Workshops

Enhancing Teaching & Learning with Technology

These workshops are aimed at any CLL Staff interested in finding out more about the use of technology tools to enhance teaching and learning. Staff are busy, and lunchtime is precious so these short sessions will last between 30-60 minutes (see details below) and participants are welcome to bring their own drinks and lunch with them if they want to combine lunching with learning. You can book a place at any of the sessions using the link at the bottom of the page.
