Presentation To Dept. of Health Professions- Elizabeth Gaskell

Date: 19th January 2011
Staff Development Session

LRT invitation to present.

Smarak Mishra invited me to present to Department of Health Professions Staff at Elizabeth Gaskell on MMU Learning Technologies. Large part of the presentation will concentrate on podcast technology, giving hands-on experience of creating a podcast and also to show users that to create a podcast is not a difficult process.

I’m taking the opportunity to further give a taster session on showcasing other development that LRT are currently involved in and how these technologies integrate with MMU’s system whereby staff can take advantage in their teaching and course delivery and enhancing students experience by providing remote accessibilities to many services.
