From Innovation to Institutional Enhancement – operating in challenging times

Date posted: 04/02/2011

The University of Hertfordshire’s Learning and Teaching Institute is pleased to announce that the Sixth International Blended Learning Conference will be hosted by the University of Hertfordshire in partnership with the Higher Education Academy and JISC Advance at The Fielder Centre, University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, on 15 and 16 June 2011.

The title of this year’s conference is “From Innovation to Institutional Enhancement – operating in challenging times”. The past decade has seen great innovation in blended learning, both in the UK and internationally. The knowledge base and experience in creating and supporting technology enhanced learning is significant. In order for this to impact the student experience in a lasting and meaningful way, innovative practice needs to translate into enhancement. The Sixth International Blended Learning Conference aims to explore this process for institutions whilst they operate in challenging times. The conference will once again have an international flavour and will also provide a unique opportunity to hear from the wide variety of work associated with the JISC Curriculum Design and Delivery projects, moving beyond the initial outcomes to the stories of embedding innovation.
