Training and support resource catalogue

Training and support resource catalogue

Below is an overview of technologies supported by Macquarie University to assist your teaching practice. These are mapped to teaching aspects where you may need help or improvement (listed on the left). Support, training, quick guides and further information can be found to the right.

Please contact your Faculty Learning and Teaching teams or the Learning Innovation Hub staff (unless a specific contact is listed below) if you require more details, would like to discuss your needs and request guidance on which tools are the right ones for you.

Please note other units such as the LibraryWalanga MuruSustainability and others on campus also provide valuable learning and teaching support and resources.

The use of all tools not listed here (e.g. open access) should be guided by the Learning Technologies Policy. Instructors are free to consider other tools that are not centrally supported, however, support for this is limited and it is recommended to consult your L&T support teams before implementing new technologies in your teaching practice.
