The Principal’s Teaching Award Scheme (PTAS) project ‘Lecture Recording for Inclusive Education' examines the impact of lecture recording on the inclusivity of teaching and learning at the university. The research team has been interviewing students and staff across the institution, reflecting on inclusion (of themselves and others) and commenting on perceived benefits and drawbacks related to the lecture recording service.

In early September 2018, members of the Digital Education research centre travelled to Istanbul to lead a three-day workshop on online teaching for a group of academics displaced to Turkey by the Syria crisis. The visit was orchestrated by Jon Turner, director of the Institute for Academic Development and one of the University of Edinburgh’s key links with the workshop organisers: the Council for At-Risk Academics (Cara - https://www.cara.ngo/).
Children's thoughts on teaching automation
Will robots take over teaching at schools? What aspects of teaching will they be good or bad at? This video is based on a series of vox pops that invited children to tell us about their thoughts on robots in general, what it would be like to have a robot teacher, and what might a robot be like in twenty years from now.
'I think they're quite intelligent'
'Might be a bit better at teaching becuase they know more answers to things'
