Message from Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning

Date : November 19, 2012 (Monday)
Time : 12:45pm – 2pm
Venue : Room 321, Run Run Shaw Building
Speaker: Professor Grahame Bilbow

In October 2010, the National Union of Students in the UK published a report entitled Student Perspectives on Technology: demand, perceptions and training needs. This report described the potential for harnessing ICT to enhance university teaching and learning, and highlighted the changing demands and interests of students in relation to e-learning. Among other things, students were by no means convinced about the universal value of e-learning; nor were they convinced that their teachers had the skills to exploit the potential that did exist.

This seminar will explore the developing notions of digital visitors and digital residents and consider how these notions can improve our understanding of students and their learning styles, and teachers and their teaching styles. It will also suggest ways in which new technology is challenging some of our views about the nature of learning and teaching in universities.
