Abstract: Two learning technologists (LTs) at an Australian University support some 140 Health faculty academics. Resources and strategies for innovative technology-enhanced teaching have been put in place, including a MediaHub, iPad pack pool and a Blackboard community site with curated resources and templates for best practice. Examples of LT-assisted and academic self-created media are presented. Designed in keeping with the university’s central learning and teaching strategies, 85 ’Landing pages’ for subject sites were created. With a design and feel praised by students, they displayed subject outlines, welcome messages, pre-class flipped activities, and library curated eReadings lists. Crucially, during the busy exam marking winter period, academics unavailable to meet in person were engaged remotely by email and interactive PDF Landing page request forms. This paper looks at this transformational subject design work and analysis of student usage data. Academics feedback has been positive. Analytics reveal strong engagement by students and academics. Suggestions for future work are also presented. (More)
