A Question of HE:  The future of digital technology in higher education

Join us on MS Teams 

Introduced by: Dr Aybige Yilmaz and Clare Conway

Host: Damian Chapman

"As the sun rises on this new dawn for higher education it is illuminating new digital models of learning and teaching, while at the same time casting a shadow of darkness across some traditional, increasingly old fashioned, ways of working."

Maguire, D. (2020) Learning and teaching reimagined: a new dawn for higher education?

Join us for the second in a series of lunchtime events hosted by the Design School. In this session we will explore the future of learning and teaching and the potential offered by a digital transformation of Higher Education. Building upon our experiences of blended delivery, we will discuss the opportunities for innovation in curriculum design, including ways in which technology can be used to promote a more inclusive learning environment and how our students contribute to the ways in which technology is used in HE.
