LIPA TEL Festival 20-24 May

What is the LIPA TEL Festival?
A week-long event for staff who support and contribute to teaching, facilitated by the TEL Team & other colleagues.  The TEL Festival gives you the opportunity to connect with colleagues to discuss teaching practice, learn about new approaches and techniques, and discuss key issues in technology-enhanced learning. 
Why should I attend?
Beginning on Monday 20th May, the TEL team and colleagues will be delivering a range of talks, workshops, and discussions about new technologies that will be available to students and teaching staff this year. Whether you are new to using technology to enhance learning or have a great deal of experience, the LIPA TEL Festival has been designed to ensure that you walk away from it both inspired and equipped with new skills to enhance your current practice and our students' learning experience.
