Case studies and best practice guides


Mobile learning: How mobile technologies can enhance the learning experience

This guide contains a range of case studies which look at a variety of uses for mobile technology including in field work; to support geographically dispersed medical students; to video practical skills development; and for self- and peer-review and assessment.  Some involve institutionally owned and managed devices; others expect students to use their own devices.  We learn about the challenges posed, notably by patchy connectivity, but also the great enthusiasm of many learners and teachers.

Each case study describes the activity and the approach taken, provides an evaluation of the activity and discusses future developments and transferability.

Engaging hearts and minds
This guide has been put together by the UCISA-DSDG Academic Support Group to provide examples of good practice in engaging academics, and other staff, in the use of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL).

The guide contains ten case studies which look at a variety of methods for engaging academics such as:

  • setting up communities of practice
  • developing intensive training and support programmes
  • incorporating TEL into Postgraduate Certificate courses
  • encouraging academics to publish their research in TEL.

Each case study describes the activity and the approach taken, provides an evaluation of the activity and discusses future developments and transferability.
