Helping you towards that 'light bulb moment'

It's often the random article, discussion or video that starts us thinking about what we do and how we do it, and whether there are different or better ways to achieve our goals.

On this page of the TEL Toolkit you will find links to new tools, videos, papers and blogs that may offer a new, or different, view on learning in higher education.

To encourage the building of an academic community which shares knowledge and expertise, your input and expertise is sought. Please contribute your thoughts via the TEL Toolkit feedback form, or FLIE on Twitter.
