Innovating e-Learning 2011: Learning in transition

The JISC e-learning team is once again running an online conference in November. Sarah Knight has forwarded some details of the event, and as ever it looks like there’s a packed programme:

The sixth JISC online conference takes place this year on 22-25 November 2011, with pre-conference activities running from 15 November.

The conference is relevant to a wide range of delegates from further and higher education. Register now to explore through live presentations and asynchronous debates some of the latest thinking about the benefits and challenges of enhancing learning and teaching with technology.

The title of the 2011 conference, Learning in transition, reflects the challenges institutions and practitioners are facing in the fast-changing landscape of post-16 education, including preparing students for employment. Sessions are organised under two themes, each with its own keynote presenter:

* Learning landscapes explores the potential in technology to forge cross-sector collaboration through which further and higher education institutions, learners and employers can work together to shape a more forward-looking curriculum

* Navigating pathways opens up some of the challenges involved in learning and teaching in a digital age and discusses potential technology-enhanced solutions
