Newcastle University Technology Enhanced Learning Advocates (NUTELA) are passionate about promoting technology in teaching and supporting colleagues to explore technology enhanced learning. In recognition of some of the fantastic work that is delivered by colleagues across the University the NUTELA Learning and Teaching Conference Award was introduced in 2018.
The award is open to anyone who is selected to be part of the Learning and Teaching Conference programme who is effectively using technology in their teaching. All eligible abstracts are judged by members of the NUTELA Steering Group and should include:
• Elements of technology enhanced learning
• Innovative teaching and learning practice
• Student engagement in teaching and learning
• Practice which can be transferable to other disciplines or areas of study.
The top three abstracts are awarded up to £150 to further the work of their projects or disseminate their findings.
