Theme 1: Finding the way

Focuses on exploring guiding principles for technology-enhanced learning and teaching. Drawing on insights from recent JISC-funded research and other leading thinkers in the field, this theme asks questions such as:

  • What are the needs and expectations of learners using technology in their learning? How can we distinguish between the myths and the reality, and respond effectively?
  • Is there a role for social media in supporting, engaging and retaining learners?
  • How can technology enhance the broader canvas of curriculum delivery?
  • What are the benefits and challenges posed by open educational resources?
  • What will educational institutions look like in the future?

Theme 2: Meeting the challenge

Looks at the integration of technology-mediated practice under specific agendas asking questions such as:

  • How can institutions respond with more agility to the changing needs of the workplace?
  • How can institutions engage employers and professional bodies in curriculum design?
  • Adopt or avoid? Can virtual worlds open up new routes to learning?
  • How can the design of technology-rich physical learning spaces be informed by research?
