David Read, ELTC

At the English Language Teaching Centre, some of our teachers have been using Google Apps to help international students develop their English skills. Google Docs has been used for essay submission, correction and review while Google Sites has been used as an alternative VLE. We are also running several pilot projects using Google+ Hangouts to hold student webinars as well as provide writing support for distance students at the university. This presentation will give an overview of these projects as well as discuss some of the issues involved with getting students and teachers up and running with Google Apps.

David joins the previously confirmed speakers Sarah Horrigan, with her presentation 'Opening Up Our Practises' and Andy Tattersall with his 'Making Shift Happen' presentation delivered by Google Hangouts.

Full details of all speakers confirmed so far and available from the event web page below, from which you can also reserve your place.
