The MyLO LMS Project implements a new Learning Management System (LMS) for UTAS. The new MyLO at UTAS will support Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching (TELT) by providing a core online learning and teaching environment that is robust, reliable and intuitive to use, and that integrates seamlessly with current services. The new LMS will be adaptable, facilitating a full range of learning and teaching approaches, disciplines and contexts, and will offer scope to support external partnerships. The system will evolve as new learning and teaching needs and opportunities arise.
To successfully achieve the MyLO project objectives, we must ensure timely and effective communication with all stakeholders. This document will serve as the basis for the planning and execution of this communication. It will encompass, but will not be limited to, communication to and from senior management, faculties and schools, staff, students and the project team.
Teaching Matters is the major showcase for learning and teaching at the University of Tasmania. This annual conference began in 2002 and provides an excellent opportunity to discuss teaching practice, recognise success in teaching and learning, showcase innovations and engender enthusiasm for excellence in learning and teaching.
The Technology-Enhanced Learning & Teaching (TELT) Action Plan V2.2 (PDF 322KB) is a Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching (TILT) initiative endorsed by the Academic Senate on 11/11/2011.
This Action Plan is the result of a broad-based enquiry into TELT (synonymous with eLearning) at UTAS. The enquiry used an internationally recognised methodology to inform the collection of evidence about current practice and to discover perceived strengths and weaknesses in our provision, delivery and management of TELT.
The recommendations presented in this Action Plan provide a framework for the progressive improvement of both student and staff experience of TELT at UTAS.
This Action Plan augments the University of Tasmania Strategic Plan for Learning and Teaching 2012 - 2014. In particular, the TELT Action Plan aims to facilitate the achievement of
The University of Tasmania wishes to consider the benefits, challenges and processes associated with establishing and maintaining a Minimum Online Presence (MOP).
This project is about exploring these issues and involves gaining the opinions of UTAS staff and students. The introduction of a MOP has received broad support from the UTAS community during the consultative stage.
