The University of Cumbria presents ‘Dimensions of learning: Universities of the future’. A conference to be held in Carlisle on 2nd April 2009. You are invited to participate in a day devoted to discussing future directions for HE and to contribute to ideas about the form and potential of the 21st century university.
The event will feature keynote talks from Dr. Liz Beaty, Director of Strategic Academic Practice and Partnership at the University of Cumbria and Professor Gilly Salmon, Professor of e-learning and Learning Technologies, Beyond Distance Research Alliance, University of Leicester. Guest speakers will include representatives from the Higher Education Academy’s E-learning Pathfinder programme, and the event aims to stimulate debate about three key dimensions of learning in the 21st century: Time, Space and Sustainability.
The conference’s keynote speeches, presentations and workshops will develop these themes to consider:
Time as a dimension of flexible learning; ways of working across time barriers; the impact of new views of time as a resource; experiences of distributed learning.
Space as a flexible resource; relationships between physical and virtual learning environments; reconfigurations of the idea of the campus; the culture and ecology of the distance learning network.
Sustainability of approaches to future learning: making the most of resources and technology for learning development; future-proofing; environmental responsibilities.
