1. Hear about the LinkedIn Learning benefits you might be missing out on (online)

Our next Tooltime session focuses on the enormous range of learning content available to all UTS staff and students on LinkedIn Learning.

Zoom in with the LX.lab on Thursday 7 July to learn more. 

2. Learn how to do more with Mentimeter (on campus)

This on-campus event is perfect for anyone who has started using Mentimeter and would like to take it further. Learn how to use Mentimeter’s collaboration tools, save time by reusing presentations, confidently create accessible presentations and more! Register and come by the LX.lab on Thursday 21 July to join this workshop. 

3. Fine-tune your feedback for students with OnTask (online)

Many teaching staff at UTS understand the difficulty of delivering effective feedback for students in large classes. And if you haven’t met OnTask yet, this two-part online event series is your chance to make this complicated process easier for all involved. In the first part of the workshop, OnTask will be introduced and its communication features demonstrated – part two is a hands-on session where you’ll learn how to set up OnTask for your subject. Zoom in with facilitator Lisa Angelique Lim (CIC) on 20 and 22 July.
