Carol, Alison and Alice have been out and about in each School during February to demonstrate the use of double screens, laptop + PC screen and Turnitin App for the IPad so that staff could try them out to see if this equipment could help them when marking online. The ability to have coursework on one screen and the marking criteria, grade centre or rubric on another was very popular with staff.
The solutions to promote the ergonomic use of this equipment, such as the cricket bat stand below let staff see how they can maintain good posture when using mobile devices. Health issues such as muscular skeletal problems may not be apparent now, but they creep up on you over time. Don’t wait until you have a problem before you adopt the correct posture when working at your PC or mobile device.
The Electronic Management of Assessment Steering Group, chaired by Susan Campbell (Registrar) are currently reviewing the feedback they have received from staff re their equipment preferences. if you want to see the equipment options available and record your requirements, drop into Room 2526 on the 11th of March at the Teaching & Learning Enhancement Open Lunch when there will be another chance to try out equipment and place your order!
