Academic Support Group



The Group aims to identify areas of interest related to the use of learning technologies in support of learning and teaching activities within higher education and is a forum for the discussion of, and the exchange of information on the development and use of technologies in teaching and learning. ASG is a sub group of UCISA Digital Skills and Development Group (DSDG) and has members drawn from a range of different types of institutions.

Academic Support Group Aims:

  • To help university support staff to promote and support the use of new technologies in teaching and learning.
  • To provide a forum for the discussion of, and the exchange of information on the development and use of technologies in teaching and learning.
  • To advise UCISA-DSDG on common views, issues, and directions.
  • To foster links with relevant groups.

Academic Support Group Functions:

  • Research how the community is using learning technology within higher education
  • Produces reports and articles on technology enhanced learning.
  • Organise workshops and contribute to UCISA Support Services conference.

The Group has surveyed UK higher education institutions over the last 12 years to capture a picture of how technology enhanced learning technologies are being used and supported. The Group has presented its findings at a variety of fora including ALT-C and at the Heads of eLearning Forum. Results of all the TEL surveys are available

Membership of the group is open to anyone who works in a UK HE institution that subscribes to UCISA with an interest in promoting and supporting the use of new technologies in teaching and learning. It is, however, a working group and members will be asked to contribute to the business of the group. The Group communicates via email and a wiki site and members meet from time to time to progress more urgent items.
