improving Student Learning Using Learning Technology - 10 years on
5 - 7 September 2011
University of Leeds, Leeds

19th Improving Student Learning Symposium hosted by the Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development (OCSLD)

Call for papers, deadline for submissions: 28 February 2011

The major aim of this symposium is to bring together those who are primarily researchers into learning in higher education, learning technologists responsible for supporting the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in teaching and learning, and teachers in higher education who are interested in improving their practice.

The phrase ‘learning technology’ was originally chosen for the 9th ISL to encompass a wide range of ICT based activities such as computer-aided assessment, computer-mediated discussion and online course delivery. Ten years on, learning technology researchers are also examining the influence of student owned technology, mobile and virtual learning, open access resources, user created content and social media.

Possible themes for this symposium have been grouped under the following four questions:

  • How do students learn using learning technologies (LTs)?
  • How can course design using LTs assist student learning?
  • How can we research student learning using LTs?
  • How can we successfully innovate/disseminate the use of LTs?
