Hidden Potential or Hollow Promise?
|Start Date||Wednesday, 6 August 2014, 10:00 am|
|End Date||Wednesday, 6 August 2014, 11:00 am|
New education technologies challenge existing models of teaching, learning and outreach practice in Higher Education. Will such technologies accelerate progress to wider access and greater success? Will they have no effect? Or even worse, a negative impact on students' access and success?
Please join Dr Rachel Buchanan (Education), Ms Liz Goode (English Language and Foundation Studies Centre) and Mr Matt Lumb (Equity and Diversity) as they provide brief summaries of their papers presented last month to the 23rd European Access Network Annual Conference at the University of Edinburgh. This will be followed by discussion of issues in the area of equity, technology and higher education.
When: 10-11am Wednesday 6 August, 2014
Jointly presented by the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education and the Community of Interest in Online Teaching, Learning and Research.
Papers to be presented
Rachel Buchanan - It's more than computer hubs: Equity, learning, and digital technologies in Higher Education.
Liz Goode - Can students from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds thrive in fully online courses? Lessons learnt in an Australian tertiary preparation program.
