PebblePad training sessions for staff - April - July

Featured Training and Events

The second series of PebblePad training sessions are available to book for staff.  

The University of Leeds has provided all staff and students with an ePortfolio. This is an opportunity to bring together all your teaching and learning evidence, reflection, discussions, planning and achievements in one online space. 

To support staff who would like to learn how to use our ePortfolio to create innovative and reflective teaching and learning materials for their students and showcase portfolios for themselves, the University has created the below online training sessions on MS Teams. The sessions, which commence on Monday 26 April, will cover a range of topics from basic to advanced for all staff

In addition to the training sessions below, further information on how to use the system is available on the IT Knowledge Base, along with a series of five short introductory videos.
