Are you looking to make your teaching more digital? Do you want to increase your knowledge of digital platforms or how they can be incorporated in your teaching to engage your students? Our team has a sound knowledge of the many platforms teachers are using for online learning as well as the pedagogy behind their use.
Whether you’re looking to keep up with your professional development or want to use technology to better reach your students, the EdTech team are more than happy to talk with you about the many digital technology platforms available and how they can be integrated into your lesson plan.
We are available to help teachers that want to grow their understanding of educational technologies and how utilising them can improve their teaching practice. Sometimes this can mean reconfiguring your course but other times it can be a simple change of how you set up the desks in your classroom. There are many different methods and techniques within instructional design, contact us to see how we can help you.
As instructional design experts we can introduce you to different pedagogical methods and educational technology tools/ software and show you how they can be used to improve student engagement, online assessment and learning outcomes. It’s our intention to help you implement educational technologies so that they can work in sync with your teaching system while improving efficiency and reducing workloads.
Whether you need to revisit an existing course or build a new course from scratch, we have the knowledge and experience to help you clarify learning objectives, improve content structure, and create online resources that are an integrated part of your lesson plan. We can also assist you with online assessment, ensuring it links with your teaching strategies and improves student outcomes.

Immersive technology covers a range of areas including gamification, virtual reality, augmented reality and even live streaming. If you have an interest in this area, our team member Dr Russell Butson would be more than happy to discuss the benefits of immersive technology and how you might go about using them in teaching. There is a lot to learn about immersive technologies from navigating metaverses and using simulated environments with inbuilt decision making capabilities as a teaching tool. We are more than happy to discuss the possibilities immersive technologies provide.
