Here's a conversation I thought you might find interesting!

Future Tense - the Goldsmiths Learning and Teaching Conference, 2012.
When: Friday 18th May 2012, 9.00 - 5.00

Where: New Academic Building, Goldsmiths University of London

Free to attend; you do need to register at

Goldsmiths Learning and Enhancement Unit is hosting an international
conference to profile individuals or groups of staff and projects, that
have shaped, challenged or shifted learning and teaching in their higher
education contexts.

There will be space and opportunity for engaging with potential futures
of technology-enhanced learning as well as interrogating what familiar
concepts such as 'interdisciplinarity' and 'research-based teaching'
really mean in practice.

In an exciting collaboration, Martin Conreen, who lectures in
Goldsmiths' Design Department, and Mark Miodownik, Professor of
Materials and Society at University College and Royal Institute
Christmas Lecturer, will be giving the keynote.

Other key speakers include education campaigner and journalist Melissa
Benn, Glasgow School of Arts education leader Professor Linda Drew,
Goldsmiths cultural scholar Professor John Hutnyk, audio learning
innovator Andrew Middleton and Kings College neuroscientist and Wellcome
adviser Richard Wingate.
