How can Universities remain attractive post-COVID?

How to tackle the dispersion of tools

Timothy SKELTON, Lead Practitioner: eLearning at New College Durham
Peter ROBERTS, E-learning systems manager Goldsmiths University of London
Esam BABOUKHAN, Learning Consultant at Microsoft and e-Learning Manager at the City of Westminster College

Nowadays, EdTech tools are in great and diverse supply, but we must be careful not to consider them ‘just one more thing to do’. When implemented well, EdTech tools are an inseparable thread woven throughout the teaching and learning process. During this session, we discussed how to tackle the dispersion of EdTech tools to ultimately drive improvements in educational outcomes.

Sarah WRIGHT, Senior Fellowship Lead at Edge Hill University

The future of education has been brought forward. Technologies afford us new opportunities for collaboration, engagement and intrigue in education. Whilst there may be some moves to ‘row back’ to a didactic model, this session explores the value of playful, creative approaches to all levels of education with a focus on practical pedagogies.
