·         what it means to be a connected learner and a connected institution?

·         the impact of 'disruptive' technologies on the student and academic experience, and on learning, teaching and assessment;

·         student-led learning, user-generated content and the challenges of remixing, reusing and curating in a digital age;

·         emerging practices, tools and approaches that enhance learner engagement and transition;

·         the skills and attributes needed for the future workforce;

·         the relationship between universities, colleges, new e-learners and globalised e-employers.


We are delighted to welcome Stephen Downes, National Research Council of Canada, and Diana Laurillard, Professor of Learning with Digital Technologies, and Assistant Director for Open Mode Learning at the London Knowledge Lab as our keynote speakers.
