Digital Education Technologies User Group

One way in which we aim to create conditions throughout Oxford where excellence in teaching and assessment can thrive is by bringing educators, administrators and students together through our facilitated education communities.

Each community offers different opportunities for staff to enhance and support their practice – from open networks and user groups, to special interest groups.

One of these is the Digital Education Technologies User Group. Find out about our other education communities.

What is the Digital Education Technologies User Group?

The Digital Education Technologies User Group (or DETUG) explores the use of digital tools to support flexible and inclusive teaching and learning at Oxford, including:

DETUG is facilitated by the Centre for Teaching and Learning and organised via Teams.

Sessions are held online once a term.

DETUG provides opportunities for members to hear about new developments in digital education tools at Oxford, and to network and share good practices and experiences. DETUG members also have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice from digital technology experts and other members.

Who is DETUG for?

DETUG is open to all staff at Oxford, including academics and teachers, administrators and librarians.

How can I manage my notifications for the Education Community Team?
