Using technology to support student learning

The Faculty of Medicine and Health at the University of Leeds is underpinning its degrees in Medicine, dentistry and the healthcare professions by a programme of Technology Enhanced Learning. Our area of expertise is learning and assessment in the workplace using mobile technology and e-portfolios.

We have considerable practical experience in the implementation of large scale mobile learning programs including the use of e-portfolios for reflection.

For several years we have been innovating in the field of mobile learning.
