Apologies for cross-posting
Announcing our second NetworkED for the 2014/15 academic year, we are welcoming Helen Keegan to the LSE on Wednesday 5th November at 5pm. Providing insights and examples of projects that engage students as producers, Helen will discuss a number of projects that span her practice, especially looking at examples of leading projects that link students across networks, cultures and countries. This talk will be of great relevance to those interested in innovative pedagogies, student led learning and media education in the digital age.
