The Learning Technology and Innovation (LTI) team support staff in the use of technologies to enhance teaching and learning at the London School of Economics. LTI is part of the Information Management and Technology (IMT) Division at the School.

Learning technology ‘is the broad range of communication, information and related technologies that can be used to support learning, teaching and assessment’ (Association for Learning Technology).

Examples of learning technology include the use of:

  • communication tools such as; discussion forums, audio/ video conferencing and social networking sites
  • online submission of assignments, assessment and feedback
  • use of technology in the classroom
  • digital library services
  • games and gamification

 

We work with colleagues across the School to promote the integration and use of technology in teaching, learning and assessment through; staff development and training, advice and guidance, research, collaboration and networking.

This requires the analysis and investigation of both pedagogic questions and technologies.
