Changing the Learning Landscape - Realities of social media in learning and teaching

24 April 2014, University of Warwick

The use of social media is increasing within higher education to teach and support student learning. The range of different social media platforms is ever expanding and it can seem quite daunting trying to navigate through this and find effective methods for learning and teaching. This workshop will discuss a range of social media platforms and provide examples of their use within learning and teaching.


Through a series of presentations, activities and discussions, led by expert speakers, this one-day workshop will introduce you to social media approaches within learning and teaching and provide opportunities to explore how such techniques could be used in your own practice.


Sessions include:

  • Social media in learning: content is a tyrant, context is king , Steve Wheeler, Plymouth University;
  • Critical assessment of social media tools: benefits and challenges, Lee Dunn, Glasgow University;
  • The Psychology of social media use: lessons from marketing, Tamara Ansons Warwick Business School;
  • Connecting with your community, Teresa MacKinnon, Language Centre, University of Warwick;
  • Online collaborative design, Mark Childs, Coventry University;
  • The student perspective.


More details and to book.
