(1) E-learning in Practice - a discussion forum for staff with experience of delivering e-learning supported programmes, providing an opportunity for sharing ideas and knowledge.
(2) Web 2.0 – combination of short practical sessions and discussions around the educational potential of blogs, wikis, portfolios, podcasts and social networking tools.
(3) “Share and Share Alike” – learning objects, digital repositories, creative commons – exploring issues in sharing teaching and learning materials across institutions
(4) Assistive Technologies – policy and practice in the use of a range of assistive technologies for learners with specific needs and examining issues of inclusion.
(5) “You Tube, I Tube, We Tube” – audio and video materials in higher education: production, distribution and pedagogy – with applications across a range of subjects from medicine to languages.
Our programme will endeavour to provide ample opportunity to thoroughly debate key issues in theory and practice and to make the event as participative as possible. We are keen for practitioners from higher education to both showcase their own work and interact with colleagues from across the sector. A continual poster session will run throughout the event and a parallel strand of short presentations will also be scheduled.
