Changing the Learning Landscape – Where are we now with digital literacies?

  • Date: 14 Mar 2013
  • Start Time: 09:30 am
  • Location/venue: University of Exeter

Who is it for?

This event is aimed at staff with teaching and learning development and professional support roles (e.g. module/programme leaders, educational developers, learning technologists and teams who support educational change). It will support the updating of how learning technologies are being used across HE, with a focus on online learning, open practice, the use of social media and online learning. The event will incorporate a 'Learning Raid' at the host institution where participants will be able to explore some of the ways that the University of Exeter is integrating digital technologies for a number of purposes and in a number of ways. There will be the opportunity to consider the implications of findings from a range of learning technology projects that report on the learning experience and perspectives from learners, academic staff and those who have a development role. This will include Students as Partners and Students as Change Agents projects.

This programme has been developed by SEDA in association with CLL partners.

Delegates at the workshop will be invited to submit proposals for funding for small scale projects in embedding learning technologies in their academic practice. Up to £5000 will be made available for workshop participants and bids between £500 and £2,500 will be invited. Individuals or teams that have attended the workshop can apply. Details of this funding opportunity will be given at the workshop.
