Helpdesk service available
Specialist help to support staff with flexible and inclusive teaching
The Centre for Teaching and Learning is providing a dedicated helpdesk service to support staff in the 2021-22 academic year.
The service provides help from experts in several areas, including digital education, educational development, and the Canvas VLE, all of whom are available to help departments, faculties and colleges with queries related to the delivery of in-person, online and hybrid teaching.
Service staff can help with:
- adapting courses to online or hybrid provision
- creating and setting up new courses in your VLE
- advising on, delivering and signposting to training as appropriate
- providing general advice relating to teaching provision.
The service is available Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm and can be contacted by emailing the helpdesk service.
Please note the service can only assist with queries relating to teaching. For anything else, please contact the general service desk.
