Support

Where to go for support - finding and using digital tech to enhance your teaching and learning, whether that's face-to-face, online or a blend of the two.

First point of contact in your Division?

Academic IT

Learning technologists in Academic IT (IT Services) can meet with individual faculty members on request to recommend or research tools to help with their teaching and educational needs. They can also support course developers to design rich, technology-enhanced learning experiences. If you are in the Medical Sciences Division, we will put you in touch with the MSD Learning Technologies team who work closely with IT Services and also provide additional medical sciences-specific services.

Academic IT's learning technologists work closely with colleagues who develop and support the University's core digital learning and teaching services: 

  • WebLearn, the University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
  • Replay, Lecture Capture service
  • Turnitin, plagiarism awareness service

You can book a learning technologist to help you evaluate and implement digital tools in your teaching and learning. For example:

  • Short initial meeting (1-2 hours)
  • Workshops and training (3-4 hours)
  • Intensive side-by-side support, helping to trial tools and approaches (e.g. 2-5 days over a term)

They can also refer you to relevant workshops and other training opportunities at the IT Learning Centre. More in-depth support is available.

Book a meeting now by emailing tel@it.ox.ac.uk or fill in this form. In the Medical Sciences Division, we will put you in touch with the MSD Learning Technologies team who work closely with Academic IT and also provide additional medical sciences-specific services.
