Refreshment break


Speaker and workshop session: Roy Williams and Jenny Mackness
Footprints: 3D representations of learners' experiences
As the learning landscape continues to change and become more 'open', the learner experience is becoming less prescribed and increasingly emergent. We are interested in finding ways of 'capturing' and describing this emergent learning. In this session we will explain our approach to drawing Footprints of Emergence and discuss how this practical tool can be used by teachers and learners to better understand the learning experience. We will also encourage you to draw your own footprints.




ELESIG Member's Corner
Do you have something to share? Would you like to pilot a new data collection tool? Do you have an idea for a project for an ELESIG small grant?  Would you like to find out who else is interested in your idea?
Why not ask for 5 - 15 mins with community members to share your research and practice into learners' experience of e-learning? (See booking form)
