The EdMedia World conference on Educational Media and Technology is an annual event hosted by the AACE (Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education). This years conference had delegates for 61 countries in attendance.
As part of the conference Educational Technology at Falmouth University in collaboration with Jarno Tolonen from Education Technology Services at Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Finland, had a submitted paper accepted for presentation. The paper addressed the theme “New roles of the instructor and learner” and is titled: “Empowering the Learning Event: New Roles for Learning and Teaching”.
In collaboration with Tampere University of Applied Sciences I’ve recently been working on a paper submission for this years EdMedia Conference. The paper focuses on the changing roles of teachers and learners in the ever changing learning landscape, particularly on learner centred models of teaching and where the power in the classroom resides.
The paper is titled ‘Empowering the Learning Event- New Roles for Learning and Teaching’ and will be presented in June at the conference.
Almost Xmas and I’ve just about finished my submission for next years HEA Arts & Humanities Conference. The theme for this years conference is Heroes and Monsters. Really hoping I’ll be able to attend this event, anyone who knows me understands my love of using metaphors, especially when it comes to describing technology. Should find out in February if the application is successful, fingers crossed!
