Edge Hill University

“Back to the Future” – Time, Technology and Teaching

Facilitated by: Professor Andrew Sackville & Cathy Sherratt

There are two main thrusts of this workshop:

  • How far do we try to incorporate the use of technological developments and “new media” into our design, planning and delivery of learning opportunities?
  • How do we prepare learners to use these technological and media developments to support their learning?

At the conclusion of this workshop participants will:

  • Have identified those learning opportunities where student learning will be enhanced by currently available and developing technology;
  • Have used a pro-forma to assess whether new technological developments will enhance or detract from the educational purpose of their teaching;
  • Have commenced the process of designing strategies for preparing learners to use the new technology effectively in their learning.

Lunch will be provided.
