Dr Jennifer Lock will be one of our three keynotes. She will be joining us from Canada as she presents her keynote on: Traversing the Online Learning Landscape: Embracing Opportunity in Designing Robust Learning
With the current grow of online learning in higher education, there is a major shift occurring in the learning landscape. As we learn more about how people learn, we need to draw on evidence-informed practice in conceptualizing, developing, and implementing robust learning within technology enabled learning environments. In designing online learning, careful consideration needs to be given to the nature and degree of the knowledge and skills developed which are required to live well in today’s complex and globally connected world. As designers of the contemporary learning landscape, we need to check our assumptions, be open to difference, embrace technological affordances, and engage in opportunities to foster inclusivity and meaningful learning for all students. In our design, how are we creating and navigating a rich online learning landscape?
