Call for proposals open for next Association for Learning Technology event at ARU

Published: 29 November 2019 at 15:06

Anglia Learning and Teaching and the University Library, ARU, are hosting the next Association for Learning Technology East England event to discuss "Technology-enhanced, active, & collaborative learning: Challenges & solutions” on Friday 21 February 10.00–16.00 in Cambridge.

The theme of the day relates well to the work we are doing as part of our strategies, “Designing our Future 2017-2026” and “Education Strategy 2018-2022” in learning and teaching and supporting our staff and students.

This is an opportunity for colleagues to share their practice of using learning technologies for collaboration and co-production such as synchronous and asynchronous co-editing, peer feedback, group and portfolio assessments.

We’re expecting up to 50 colleagues from across the region who are interested in technology-enhanced and active learning. The day will start with an optional campus tour followed by workshops and lightning strikes. There will be plenty of time to hear about different experiences and to network.

Colleagues from all faculties and Professional Services are invited to submit a proposal to share their work as an interactive workshop or short presentation, which addresses skills and competencies related to active, student-centred learning. Please complete the online submission form by Friday 24 January 2020, 15.00.

“This is a valuable opportunity to work with colleagues from across the region, share your practice, exchange ideas, test techniques and approaches, and network,” says Neil Dixon, ARU / ALTEE.

A draft schedule of the day can be viewed online and registration for attendance (presenters and non-presenters) will open on Monday 20 January 2019 via EventBrite (more details and invitation to follow).
