• Technology Engagement Group

    The Technology Engagement Group (TEG) is a group formed to experiment with new technologies that have potential to enhance the student learning experience.

    Introducing TEG

    The ideas behind TEG are set out in an article by Richard Francis who had been inspired by a visit with Academic Liaison Librarian Debbie Lenihan in June 2015 to the Disruptive Media Learning Lab (DMLL) at the University of Coventry. Entitled Disrupting Vision, it’s a light-hearted piece, to be read in a spirit of adventure but with some semi-serious food for thought.

    How better to build an appetite for new technology than to attend our lunchbytes, short, informal, lunchtime discussions of accessible new or lesser known technologies that might just change the way you work... or at least whet your appetite for more digital goodness?
