3 April 2019, 14:00 - 16:00
Led by Professor Mike Sharples, Honorary Visiting Professor, Centre for Innovation in Higher Education (CIHE)
The most visible innovations in higher education have been new educational technologies. These include Virtual Learning Environments, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), mobile devices and online lecture capture. Less obvious, but equally important, are new pedagogies: innovative theories and practices of teaching, learning and assessment. They are founded on theories of active and social learning, evidence from the Learning Sciences and studies of effective practice. Some are still being developed and tested. They include spaced learning, stealth assessment, seamless learning, epistemic education, teachback, formative analytics, design thinking, and open pedagogy.
In this seminar, Prof Sharples will outline innovations in pedagogy for digital higher education, give examples of promising pedagogies, and discuss how pedagogy-informed design can drive digital transformation.
Lunch will be served at 2pm with the seminar starting at 2.30pm.
