Digital Education Technologies User Group
Exploring the use of digital tools to support flexible and inclusive teaching and learning at Oxford
Next online meeting - Thursday 15 June, 10.30-11.30am
Join us to hear updates on:
- Oxford’s ‘big 5’ digital education tools (Canvas, Panopto, ORLO, Teams and Inspera)
- the Centre for Teaching and Learning's new Digitally Supported Inclusive Teaching Toolkit
- Digital Transformation work in the education space
- courses and support to help you get ready for 2023-24.
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 community. The 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 other groups in our education community.
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:
- Canvas (Oxford’s centrally supported virtual learning environment)
- ORLO (Oxford Reading Lists Online)
- Panopto (also known as Replay Lecture Capture)
- Microsoft Teams
- Inspera (for online exams and online coursework submissions)
- and other digital tools such as Cabinet, Vevox, H5P, Miro, or even VR.
DETUG is facilitated by the Centre for Teaching and Learning and organised via Teams.
Meetings 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.
