Active Learning Conference 11 & 12 September 2017 at Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge campus.
Afternoon of 11 September - pre-conference Master Classes in: SCALE-UP (Student-Centred Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies), Team-based learning (TBL) and TEAL (Technology-Enhanced Active Learning).
The main conference will be opened on 12 September by Professor Mike Sharples, Chair in Educational Technology Learning and Teaching Innovation, Open University, whose keynote address will focus on ‘Designs for Active Learning’.
