About

Our Auditio blog provides a way for students and staff to celebrate and share our learning experiences at the University of Exeter. There are many misconceptions about the value of blended and online learning, and we aim to challenge these with evidence-based examples of good practice from the enhancements we have made.

Auditio means “to listen” in Latin. That is exactly what this blog is about. We want to share stories of authentic experiences, learning achievements and all the challenging things along the way.

We are looking for posts written by students or staff who have an interesting story to tell about their educational experiences this year. You might like to share examples of projects that have worked well, recurrent challenges and how these are being addressed, things you have been surprised about, or good inclusive practices.

What might make a good topic for a post?

We want to hear about the things you think are interesting.

Students

If you are a student working as a Digital Learning Assistant (DLA) these may include your perspectives on one or more of the following questions:

• What have you been doing in your DLA role?

• What have you learnt about how to make learning engaging?

• Has your sense of good teaching changed, and how has it impacted on your own learning? How has your experience as a DLA informed your own career preparation?

• What have you learnt about how students can contribute to teaching in the future?

• What do you think academics should know about student experiences of learning at the moment?

• How would you like this year to inform your University education in the future?

Digital Learning Developers (DLDs)

If you are a member of staff working as a Digital Learning Developer (DLD) these may include your perspectives on one or more of the following questions:

• What have you done and why?

• What has been surprising?

• In what ways has your sense of good teaching changed?

• What have you learned about collaborative working?

We also welcome examples of DLAs/DLDs/academic staff working well together to address a challenge collaboratively.
