The aim of this site is to provide information about the two-year JISC-funded Integrative Technologies Project - a collaborative initiative between Education Enhancement and the University of Exeter Business School. It also points users to resources and support to help them develop their own practice, whether within the Business School or beyond.
"Students are more ready to engage. They are better prepared for the learning process, and through technology have more of a sense of community as learners"
Dr David Boughey, Director of Education, University of Exeter Business School
The INTEGRATE project focused on three core challenges: how to promote a learning ethos in which students actively participate, engage and feel known, despite the ever- increasing numbers; how to manage assessment and feedback with large numbers; how to promote a collaborative community in which diversity is both valued and well-catered for.
"Helped us make the transition from six quiet and nervous freshers to six competent, confident and collaborative university students"
