eLearning Forum

The second meeting of 2014 will be from 12.30 – 14.00 on Wednesday, 11th June in the Enterprise Zone (in the Library). There are two presentations:

We know lectures don’t work but anyway, here’s a lecture: reflections on opportunities in the 21st Century – Iain Atherton, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health

Video – Annotations/Crowd Sourcing – Kevin Brosnan & Edward Moran, School of Education, & Derek Robertson, e-Learning Liaison and Development Team

Iain’s talk discusses an innovate use of Blackboard Collaborate to deliver statistics teaching to post graduates taking the Masters in Research in the School. Come and find out where learning really takes place! The second session covers  a system that tracks how students interact with ‘Listen Again’ recordings and a prototype system that allows students and lecturers to make textual annotations on video recordings of teaching practice.

We’ll be starting at 12.30 with lunch. The presentations will start around 13.00. We’re aiming to finish by 14.00.

To register for the event please contact Kirsteen Young  (ext 6876).
