Teaching and Learning Conversations (TLC)
Roger Rees from the University of Surrey will lead an exciting webinar on Tuesday the 25th of November, 12-1pm GMT* during which we will discuss “Reframing discussions about technology enhanced learning”. We hope you will be able to join us.
Discussions about the impact that technology can have on learning and teaching contexts are normally limited in a number of ways and tend to become split into overly pessimistic or optimistic viewpoints. They are also often undermined by a drift toward technological determinism. This contribution will suggest alternative perspectives that allow a more complex view of the relationships. These ecological or systemic perspectives will be used to suggest the potential for the adoption of technology to support developments that are transformative and integrative.

About Teaching & Learning Conversations
TLC is an exciting cross-institutional collaboration to provide open CPD opportunities for everybody teaching and/or supporting learning in Higher Education. TLC brings together colleagues from different disciplines, institutions and countries. TLCs are also open to students in HE and we are very interested in including students’ contributions to the programme.
Together, we discuss and debate a variety of current teaching and learning topics in a series of webinars which provide a great opportunity to reflect on and share good practice and to find out what is happening beyond your own institution the more global HE landscape.
All webinars are open to the wider community to join.
