As a precursor to this year’s 2013 Teaching Colloquium, a symposium on MOOCS and the student experience of blended learning will take place at the University on the 8th of July from 12 noon to 5pm.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) is hosting the event, which is sponsored by the University of Sydney Association of Professors and STL.
Themes will include the challenges, opportunities and risks created by MOOCs and the student experience of blended learning for research-intensive, campus-based Universities. Key speakers are: Professor Diana Laurillard of the London Institute of Education; Professor Peter Goodyear, Australia’s first ARC Laureate in Education; and Mr Andrew Norton of the Australian Grattan Institute, along with other speakers knowledgeable about the student experience of blended learning and MOOCs in the future of Higher Education in Australia.
The program and more details of the event will be made available shortly. Register now at http://sydney.edu.au/elearning/pd/MoocSymposiumRego.php, as spaces are limited.
