Using Technology to Enhance Learning

Date posted: 04/02/2011

16th Annual SEDA Conference 2011
Aston Business School Conference Centre, Birmingham
17  - 18 November 2011

Call for Contributions, deadline: 13 May 2011

The conference will focus on the pedagogy of technology enhanced learning. They invite proposals for sessions which explore the use of technology in teaching and learning, from the perspective of the underlying pedagogy. They welcome proposals for sessions that explore the effective use of all forms of technology, be that via Virtual Learning Environments, websites, telephones, podcasts, videos, audience response systems and more. The focus may be on distance learning, but it may also encompass blended learning and technology supported face to face delivery. They particularly welcome contributions that contribute towards educational development.

Session formats
The emphasis should be on reflection, exploration and evaluation rather than merely describing what is happening. It is also a long-standing tradition at SEDA conferences to encourage and promote sessions which involve delegates in active participation and discussion, and consequently this is an expectation of delegates.

Proposals for posters, papers and workshops are invited which address the conference themes:

  • Creating and using learning communities online with staff or with students
  • Redesigning modules and programmes for use in online and blended learning provision
  • Effective use of technology to enhance teaching and strategies to engage staff in their use
  • Assessing and/or providing feedback online
  • Using technology to engage students in their learning development
  • Using e-technologies for educational development
  • Developing joined up approaches for all staff involved in the support of learning
  • Innovative use of social media
