    BrITe Ideas
    We pride ourselves on being "ideas people": this publication is our attempt at brain-storming on paper. Devoting a page to each of ten headings (such as coping with large classes, facilitating group work, or project work) this short booklet gives a list of ideas of how IT can be used to enhance learning and teaching.
    Available as a Acrobat document (250kB) for reading online and printing. top of page

    AssessIT
    "A leaflet to assist academic staff in the use of learning technology to support assessment." Contains short case reports of institutional strategies for adopting IT in assessment, details of software which can be used in assessment and a list of useful resources.

    Implementing Learning Technology
    Our most popular publication (although BrITe Ideas is catching up), this is a more detailed, in-depth look at the practical issues which anyone using IT in teaching will face, a description of the conceptual framework behind their solution, and (of course) lots of ideas. Written with modular access in mind, each chapter is self-contained and the introduction suggests possible routes for people with different interests.
