Have you thought about using a throwable microphone in your teaching? Or an interactive touch screen? Or even an augmented reality headset? You can explore these and many more technologies and borrow them for your teaching.
An easy way to discover some of your options is to explore our kit. The Centre for Teaching and Learning holds a collection of different technologies that you can try out first and then borrow for your teaching practice. Our team of learning technologists can also support you in thinking about how to use these technologies to their full potential.
