Realising the Potential: Enabling Participative Learning
The main theme this year is participative learning: realising the
emergent potential of new technologies to enable learners to share and shape
their learning experience.
Associated themes include: emerging technologies; personal and social learning efficacy in a new ‘participative learning web’; models of best practice in participative and collaborative learning; technology enhanced professional development and work-based learning; managing emerging organisational issues of quality, ownership and collaboration.
Conference keynote presenters include national and international experts in the field: Professor Dr. Betty Collis, Professor Derek Longhurst; Professor Mark Stiles; Dr David Nicol; Dave Parkes.
This conference is firmly focused on learners and learning in Higher and Further Education. It explores the challenges of retaining that focus amidst the wave of new technologies to support learning and of exploiting their potential for participative learning through enabling learners to both situate and to actively share and shape their learning experience.
Like their successful ‘eLearning at the Cusp’ conference last year, this year’s conference will be of interest to Higher Education academic developers, managers and policy makers. It will combine an exploration of key issues at the forefront of technology supported learning with master classes in paradigms for practice, to help universities, colleges and practitioners understand, shape and exploit the potential presented by emerging technologies.
The cost of the conference is £130
