The uses and expectations of technology in education have perhaps changed as much in the last ten weeks as they have in the last ten years, and we are in the midst of a period of rapid learning and adjustment. Therefore, now more than ever it is valuable for us to consider the relationship between teaching, learning and technology.
Join us for this interactive online conversation as we discuss our learning and practices during this sudden move to online life, how we might take that learning into future learning environments and classrooms, and how we can support each other and share practice in this period of rapid change. We will critically explore the role of technology in our teaching and learning in this new landscape and consider how, as educators and learners, we can engage with technology so that it better supports (rather than governs) our pedagogic intentions and practices. This will be a supportive and exploratory event in which we can discuss what we have learned from both our successes and failures, as well as how we can incorporate that learning into the future of higher education.
