Listen up, because the Petroc Library Technology and Learner Services team have set up a brand new project for YOU to share how you learn using technology with other students, a fantastic opportunity to enhance your CV and make a difference!
The project, #TechThisOut was launched at Fresher’s Fayre last Thursday (15 September).
Töm Scott, Learning Technologies Coordinator, said: “We’re looking for students who are enthusiastic, have an interest in journalism, technology or teaching, or simply have a little creative flare to join our team.
“We’d like to meet with them on a monthly basis, possibly having a video conference with students at the MD Campus.
“During these meetings we would discuss our findings, and share knowledge with one another, and work out what we should be writing about in the near future, and work together to find the best ways to get the information out to staff and students.”
Between meetings, the team are urging participants to tweet, post videos and blog about the technology they use in their learning, search online for tips that will help other students and share what they have learned.
Aside from enjoyment and making a real difference to the college community, those involved with the #TechThisOut will get an exclusive badge (come on, we love those), learn more about technology and e-learning, work with lecturers to alter the way courses are taught using technology, invaluable experience for the CV and UCAS form and (because why not) cake and sweets!
So come on, what are you waiting for? GET INVOLVED by popping into the library, tweeting @PetrocLTLS, or emailing LearningTechnologies@petroc.ac.uk.
Any questions, just ask the Library/Study Centre staff – they’re always happy to help!
