The project team will be out and about at four conferences in 2013, sharing what we’ve been developing at Exeter with the wider HE and FE community. If you’d like to chat with us in person, you’ll find us at the following events:
- First up is the Assessment in HE Conference, 26th-27th of June (2 days) at the Maple House Conference Centre, Birmingham. We have a poster about the approach the project has taken accepted for this, which Charlotte will be presenting. Posters are being discussed at 11:30 on Thursday the 27th of June. Our poster has a special twist, as we’ve augmented it using Augmented Reality tools provided by Layar.
- Next is the Academic Practice and Technology (APT) Conference: Next Generation Learning Places and Work Spaces, 2nd of July (1 day) at Queen Anne Court, Maritime Greenwich Campus, University of Greenwich. We have a presentation accepted for this, which Stuart will be presenting. It’s the second time that Stuart has attended this event, last year it was to hear what others have been doing in this area, but now to it’s our turn to share what we’ve been up to. Stuart’s talk is titled “A curriculum design tool to align assessment with technology”.
- Then it’s the HEA Annual Conference – Powerful partnerships: defining the learning experience, 3rd-4th of July (2 days) at the Ramphal Building, University of Warwick. We have a presentation accepted for this, which Rich will present. Rich will be talking about the work we’ve been doing bringing employers into the assessment process, and his presentation is titled “Collaborative curriculum approaches for the design of ‘authentic’ assessments to enhance student employability”.
- Finally it’s the Association for Learning Technology Conference, ALT-C 2013 – Building new cultures of learning, 10th-12th of September (3 days) at the University of Nottingham’s East Midlands Conference Centre. We have a presentation and a research paper accepted for this, and Liz, Rich and Stuart will all be attending. Stuart will be talking about “Raising the profile of technology use amongst learners: Taking control of digital literacy development” and Rich will be talking about “Integrating technologies into ‘authentic’ assessment design: An affordances approach”.
Be great to meet up with colleagues, and we’d be more than happy to chat about what we’ve been doing and share the tools and techniques that we’ve developed more widely. if you’d like to plan something ahead of time!
