Blended Learning 2016 Summit
With the technological advances made over the last two decades, students are no longer limited to learning in traditional classroom environments. For Australia’s tertiary sector, this means in order to remain competitive and remain relevant, teaching and learning practices are required to constantly adapt to new global realities.
Adopting the most effective blend of face to face, while integrating ICTs into course design is imperative in order to increase student engagement and for an institute to remain competitive. However, with government funding being scares, this is generating pressure on the resources available to institutions to incorporate innovative and digital teaching techniques into their curriculum design.
With that in mind, Blended Learning will be a part of the inaugural Learning Innovation Week, which includes key education events - Campus Development and Innovation in Assessment & Credentials, three of our most topical summits will be expanded and interlinked, with joint plenary keynotes before splitting into streams, aimed at driving the future focus and strategy of the Australian tertiary sector.
This years Blended Learning Summit has been specifically design to address the following key themes:
- Implementing innovative blended teaching methods to improve student engagement and encourage continued learning
- Promotion a culture of blended learning within the institute and effecting stakeholder mindset transformation
- Improving communication between educators and technical staff to better utilise resources
