Blended Learning 2015

Improving Student Engagement and Achievement through Digital Technology, Course Design and Innovative Teaching Methods

With government funding for university development running scarce and ‘digital natives’ becoming more prevalent in lecture theatres across the country, educational developers and academics are looking to different techniques in delivering information to students. Utilising digital and online resources, and incorporating these effectively into course design, has become key in increasing student engagement, and subsequently achievement.

With that in mind, Blended Learning 2015 has been designed to share best practice examples of how Australian leading universities are improving achievement by:

  • Up-skilling and transforming teacher mindset to allow technology to enhance rather than replace their practice
  • Improving communication between academics and educational developers to better understand and utilise existing resources and technology to its full potential
  • Discovering the right balance of blended learning to improve student engagement and reduce cost
  • The effectiveness of flipped classrooms, learning analytics, e-learning and mobile learning in increasing student engagement
