We took a look at what’s going on around the University next week to see which might be of particular interest for Arts and Humanities staff.

Resource lists: Tips and Tools

It’s summer again and time to update Resource Lists. The Library are offering a useful session in Clifton where you can “smarten up your Resource lists, adding in a variety of resources and monitoring how your lists are being used.”


Beyond the language classroom: researching MOOCs and other innovations

With the rise of the internet and new communication technologies, language learning has moved beyond the classroom walls. This volume presents a range of important studies on innovative ways for learning languages outside the classroom. Chapters discuss MOOCs in the UK, Belgium, China, and Italy for studying a range of languages, research on new apps, flipped classroom modes, and approaches to informal learning in a range of international settings. In these ways, the volume offers a significant contribution to our understanding of how learning beyond the language classroom will transform language education in the decades to come.



Rachel (Bancroft) has been introducing staff to Kahoot! after her success using it with students earlier in the year. Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform. Look out for a blog post in the future about Kahoot! and its aim to ‘Make learning awesome’.

As always, you can contact us below for help, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have, or to offer support.
