Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)
Embedding technology in learning and teaching
The Technology Enhanced Learning Unit (TEL) sits within the Directorate of Education and Training (DET) at the Tavistock Clinic.
TEL was created in July 2014. We work closely with faculty staff and other key stakeholders to introduce and embed the use of technology in learning and teaching.
The team hold a number of key skills, including specialisms in multimedia content creation and editing, learning design, Moodle administration, online assessment and feedback, video conferencing, lecture capture and audio-visual technologies. The TEL team were Highly Commended in the 2017 Learning Technology: Team of the Year Awards (Association for Learning Technology).
You can find us in Rm 239 (second floor) and the Multimedia Centre (fifth floor) of the Tavistock Clinic. You can contact the team on TELsupport@tavi-port.nhs.uk.

We are responsible for our Moodle virtual learning environment, which is used by course teams to support learning. We also manage the integrated Turnitin solution, a plagiarism detection tool. All summative assignments by students are submitted online through Moodle and Turnitin.
We also manage the Trust's ZOOM video conferencing platform. ZOOM is used extensively throughout courses to offer flexibility in teaching delivery.

We are also responsible for all audio-visual equipment in the seminar rooms and offer lecture recording and live streaming from the fifth floor Lecture Theatre.
