Abstract

The ways in which services are delivered is changing and the social work workforce will have to evidence their competence in the use of existing and emerging technologies aimed at improving outcomes for service users. This is cognisant with Ulster’s Student Learning Experience Principles (2016) integrating Digital Fluency which seeks to ‘Provide opportunities for learners to enhance and apply their digital skills for learning, living and working in a digital society’.This presentation introduces electronic management of assessment and explores the range of digital technologies which the social work team at Ulster University are engaging with to enhance the student learning and teaching experience.
