Join us on the 16th of October for a CoCo Seminar by Rafael A. Calvo, and Dorian Peters titled " Developing autonomy and self-efficacy with technology”
"We're very interested in engaging in an interdisciplinary discussion on the issues of autonomy and how educators (and social workers and technologists, etc.) think we might design technologies (educational technologies and others) in ways that favour support for learner/user autonomy over compliance and control"
When: Wed 16th of October 11.00am - 12.30pm (arrive at 10.45am for refreshments)
Where: Education Building (A35) Room 230
