Good Practice at USW

There are many ways of using technology to enhance teaching, learning, and the student experience. We want to share the best examples with you so that you can see good practice in action, including:

  • Good practice exchange — a showcase of innovative approaches in the adoption of TEL by colleagues across the University.
  • UniLearn and good practice — the ways that we are working to make the tools within UniLearn as useful as possible.
  • Approaches — concepts and theories that sit behind a lot of work in technology-enhanced learning.

Don’t forget: Good practice also needs to comply with USW policies such as the VLE Minimum Requirements. Read about the relevant policies on our Policy pages.

Case studies

In this section you can find out directly from the staff here at the University about their experiences and use of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL).

If you are a member of staff at the University of South Wales and would like to share your own story on the use of technology in online assessment practices please email the Technology-enhanced Learning Teams via

UniLearn and good practice

The following are features that you’ll see in Blackboard that have been implemented as standard across the university after being demonstrated as good practice.

Course and module evaluation (Loop)

A new course and module evaluation system was introduced in the autumn term, 2016, to simplify the process of obtaining, collecting and reporting the evaluation of individual modules. All modules now have the Loop evaluation tool automatically embedded.
