Anna Campbell, Psychology lecturer at Havering Sixth Form College and sessional tutor at Birkbeck and the Mary Ward Centre met with the APT STAIRS Project Manager, Sarah Sherman, last week. The meeting provided Anna with a face-to-face training session on Google Docs and to find out how the tool is being used in Bloomsbury. This is the first dissemination engagement we've had with a member of staff at an FE College - and it went really well. Anna went away with some thoughts on how she might use the tool to support her teaching.
APT STAIRS is an acronym for Appropriate and Practical Technologies for Students, Teachers, Administrators and Researchers.
We are trialling out new web 2:0 technologies across the Bloomsbury colleges, to enhance learning and teaching in further education. We will be working closely with Google Docs in this JISC funded project, until April 2009.
