ILIaD is no longer active.

During 2016, a review of ILIaD concluded that the continuing provision of effective and sustainable support for staff development and technology-enhanced education would be best addressed by embedding the functions previously based in ILIaD within iSolutions, the Library, the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences, and Human Resources.   

As an interim measure, if you have a question or require support in any of these areas, please contact either HR; your Business Relationship Manager (iSolutions); Academic Engagement Librarian (Library) (click on the Contact Us drop down at the top and select your Faculty) or the newly formed Centre for Higher Education Practice and they will be able to redirect you as appropriate.

Stephan Caspar joined the University in May 2014, after working in FE as a Head of Creative Arts which included Gaming & Computing, Enterprise, Fine Art and Performing Arts. Stephan focussed on teaching & learning, working to ensure every student had a rich, broad and exciting experience throughout their programme of study. He created a yearly festival of new technology and gaming, inviting students throughout the region to bring their ideas to life and take control of their learning. Initially, Stephan trained as a filmmaker, working in feature film production before moving to the BBC and into documentary. He worked for BBC People as a Content Producer for Informal Learning, creating online films on subjects as diverse as philosophy, journalism, values and ethics.

Stephan's role with ILIaD Media Development team is to create engaging, high quality content that supports academics, whether video, podcast, animation or enhanced learning object. This work takes him into conversation with researchers and educators, promoting storytelling, public engagement and reflective practice. ILIaD Media Development staff have produced work for online and distance courses and other aspects of teaching & learning, most notably the move towards a blended delivery. In particular, Stephan is interested in encouraging students to use media for assignment submission and to evidence learning. Stephan's links to FE remain and he is talking to colleagues about their adoption of the FELTAG recommendations and how best to implement new technology into the curriculum. Stephan is a member of the TELL Board (Technology Enhanced Learning and Living) and Local Enhanced Learning Group, an active member of ALT (Association for Learning Technologies) and a member of the steering group for MELSIG (Media Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group) based at Sheffield Hallam University.
