This is an opportunity for Cambridge’s teaching staff to see guest speaker, Dale Munday from Lancaster University, showcase how Lancaster University are using MS Teams in higher education.

NOTE: UIS is currently undertaking a review of all the digital collaboration services it provides with a view to rationalising the number of solutions it supports in future. Microsoft Teams is one of the solutions included in the scope of the review. The review is still in progress, and no decisions about which solutions UIS will support in future have yet been reached. This external speaker event is being hosted by UIS independently of the review, and is solely intended to share information about what other HE establishments are doing in the digital education space.

MS Teams is a digital hub that brings conversations, content, and apps together in one 21st Century teaching and learning space. Educators can create collaborative classrooms, connect in professional learning communities, and communicate from a single experience in Office 365 for Education allowing them to create rich, persistent conversation makes learning more visible and accessible to the entire class.

Teachers can engage students in project-based learning with text, video, and voice using integrations. Harnessing student social interactions allow educators to enhance the learning and provide an engaging space to assess and feedback. The opportunity to empower students while helping them develop the skills they'll need to be successful in the future will be demonstrated throughout the session. Approaching assessment & feedback as an ongoing dialogue presented in multi-modal and digital form can support opportunities for learning that are creative, critical, and mirror our increasingly digitally-mediated society.

Delegates will be guided through Microsoft Teams and the process of utilizing a range of digital tools to create an engaging, inclusive and pedagogically underpinned curriculum/classroom. The session will focus on active learning approaches, harnessing the opportunities afforded through digital technologies, where inclusion and collaboration will be at the forefront. Amplifying the synergy between Microsoft Teams and the associated Class OneNote will demonstrate the power of individualised student portfolios and the variety of teaching approaches that can be enhanced through this delivery resource. Building on recent research, which explored the impact of drawing on to-be-learned information, highlighted enhanced memory and found it to be a reliable, replicable means of boosting performance. Teams & Class OneNote allow teachers and students to use digitally handwritten notes, drawings and graphic organisers to enhance the learning experience.
