Our Digital Learning Labs, virtual communities in Oxford, are experimenting and sharing practice in the following areas:
The Digital Learning Labs allow academics, tutors and staff to explore technologies and practices in the field of teaching and learning - without having to go through bureaucratic processes.
Labs, supported by learning technologists from the TEL team in CTL, facilitate exploration, collaboration and innovation. With Oxford’s Digital Education Strategy (2016-2020) allocating resources to support students and staff in the use of current digital technologies, work has been done to raise awareness. We have also started to build a solid foundation from which to implement digital learning across the University. Given this ideal environment for exploring new ideas, we have introduced Digital Learning Labs.
These Labs give you the opportunity to
Labs enable Oxford to be at the forefront of digital education. To this end, the TEL team in CTL focuses on:
In exchange for our support, we ask you to share your experiences with other academics and staff at Oxford. So if you are interested in trialling a technology, for example, we will ask you for your feedback in order to share it here, making it accessible to a wider audience. In this way we make sure that knowledge exchange takes place across the University.
Digital Learning Labs will help to create a culture within which research related to technology enhanced learning in Oxford and beyond can flourish. They are a means of not only keeping IT and administrative staff informed but also engaging the majority of academic staff and researchers at Oxford with digital education.

Teaching Oxford Remotely (TOR) - a discussion mailing list for academic staff to share stories and ask questions of each other.
