Starting on July 14th and running for one week... 

Are you a busy lecturer who'd love to learn more about all these technologies everybody seems to be using but you just don't have the time? Or perhaps you're a student who wants to know how all these mobile devices, apps and social media can help you study? Or maybe you're a Learning Developer or academic support staff who worries about being left behind in this changing learner landscape?

BYOD4L is an online learning space open to all - teaching staff, academic support staff, students and anyone else who is interested. Throughout the week of July 14th - 18th, participants will have opportunities to discover how to use mobile devices, apps and social media for learning and teaching. Together, we'll look at how to:

  • Connect
  • Communicate
  • Curate
  • Collaborate
  • Create

To learn more about what the course involves, have a look at the BYOD4L Start Here page. There's no need to register and you can participate as much or as little as you want. 

There are currently 5 universities involved in facilitating this online short course. They are:

Manchester Metropolitan, Sheffield Hallam, Sussex, Ulster, London Metropolitan

If you're at London Met, two of the CELT eLearning team will be helping to facilitate BYOD4L and we'll be running a short intro sessions to help you get started on Friday 11th (12 - 1) and Monday 14th (1 - 2) in LCM-18 in the Learning Centre. For more info on the London Met facilitators, check our BYOD4L Institution Page. Please do come and join us and together we can unravel some of the mysteries of using mobile devices, social media and other tools for learning and teaching.
