International recognition for University resources

Staff from Skills@Library, representing the LearnHigher CETL have recently returned from the 'Emerging Technologies Conference'.

At the conference, held in California, they received two effective practice awards from the Sloan-C, Moodle and Merlot Consortium. 

The awards which recognise 'achievements in advancing the field of online and blended learning' were presented to Julia Braham LearnHigher Learning Area Co-ordinator for a web based resource, designed to support students working together in teams, and to Carol Elston, e-learning adviser for Skills@Library and LearnHigher for a suite of online tutorials to support tutors delivering academic skills workshops.

This year's conference was attended by over 750 academics and instructional designers from Higher and Further Educational institutions worldwide. 'We are delighted to see the resources recognised by an international audience' says Carol. For further information please visit the LearnHigher website at:
