GRASS is spreading!!!

As a team we have been enormously busy over the last couple of months around the University and around the country talking about screen capture.  It has been brilliant to see such enthusiasm, particularly in Reading, on the use of this enormously versatile technology to improve T&L provision.


Our mini tour started back in November. After a quick CQSD showcase event I went up to the University of Leeds as an invited speaker. As soon as I got back we ran our first Reading Lunch and Learn session for 33 colleagues who all enjoyed our famous home-made cake buffet.

I then headed off to the University of Bristol before returning home to talk to 26 highly enthusiastic ISLI colleagues for an hour long lunchtime meeting in February.

The following day we had the opportunity to outline the use of screen capture to provide feedback to another full room at a CQSD training session. Just a week later Cindy was able to outline our project at the School of Humanities Board of Studies meeting and at the School of Language and Literature T&L meeting.  David and I delivered our first ever interactive session during an hour long meeting with 10 colleagues from the School of Biological Sciences. With at least 8 more internal meetings and one external visit planned from now until June we will certainly be keeping ourselves busy!

Of course one of our key events is the second GRASS Lunch and Learn in Carrington 101, on Friday 27th March. The event will run from 1 until 3 but colleagues are welcome to leave earlier. This is an interactive event so if you would like to actually make a screencast on your own laptop whilst eating some of these…
