The use of ICT in education is becoming increasingly important. Not only is there an overwhelming supply of tools for teaching, but students also expect to acquire the digital skills that are demanded in their professional careers. Therefore the urgency is growing for teachers to start using ICT for teaching and learning.
ICTOL, the Faculty of Arts Centre of ICT and Education, can help you with this!
In August 2019, ICTOL will be offering the next series of Just do IT workshops on the use of technology and teaching. The emphasis in the workshops is on promoting ‘good practices’ and making teaching and learning more effective and more efficient by the use of technologies. The workshops are in the form of one-hour hands-on demos and practice. We use ‘Just do IT’ as motto because the use of ICT should be simple and functional. After the workshops, participants should be confident in using the tools on their own.
New in this series are the workshops TrainTool, Perceptiv and Nestor Discussion Board. Updated are Interactive video with H5P (now integrated in Nestor) and Nestor Journals, Blogs and wikis. For a description, see the overview below.
And we will repeat ten of the workshops we gave earlier, including Interactive whiteboards, Grade registration in Nestor, Collaborative writing using Google Drive and Google Docs, Google Classroom, Creating tests in Nestor, Assignments and feedback in Nestor and Using Rubrics in Nestor.
Workshops are at beginners’ level, unless indicated otherwise. Attendance to the workshops is free for Faculty of Arts members of staff.

Location: Harmonie building, Multimedia rooms 2-3 and Practicum Room Law.
