WESTON College's library service has scooped a Best National Practice Award for its technical support.
The Council for Learning Services in College (ColRiC) judges chose the TechGenius for its top level of service interaction and team leader, Jon Hofgartner, said: “TechGenius was set up by technologist Louise Hutson with computing students gaining work experience by helping others with computer, tablet, laptop, PC and phone glitches.”
Around eight students rotate campuses offering general technical advice.
Computing student, Ryan Prescott, aged 20, of Ashcombe Road, Weston, also offers TechGenius support, and said: “We hope winning this award will bring more recognition to the TechGenius program and look forward to helping more people.”
The college is also organising its first technology enhanced learning conference at Knightstone’s campus on July 9 which is open to anyone in secondary, further and higher education.
