Plenary

Plenary

Is learning being revolutionised by the rapid changes taking place in society and the emergence of large-scale delivery phenomenon like MOOCs? And what about the increased use of media – simply extending the range of support available to teachers and learners or a fundamental shift in the way we support learners?

Join our plenary speakers as they discuss the nature of learning and describe how media resources of different kinds are used to support learning activity, from MOOCs to SPOCS to traditional classroom teaching.

Coffee Break

According to wikipedia, the 'coffee break' allegedly originated in the late 19th century in Wisconsin, USA with the wives of Norwegian immigrants - but in conference terms it has come to mean the time when you meet old friends and catch up on news and developments. During Media and Learning we plan to improve on this idea by making sure you also meet new people and will be providing you with a participants list and a code for contacting anyone attending the conference using your mobile phone. This way you can use the coffee break to really expand your network .... and don't worry - we will also be providing coffee, tea and fresh drinks!

Come and play
During the coffee breaks and lunches you can also visit the dedicated Play Area in the dining and networking space where you can try out and use different devices and applications in an informal and friendly manner. This Play Area is managed by conference staff and with the input of several teachers.
