Learner Technologies and Open Educational Resources: the future mixed economy of education
Date: Friday 3 Apr 2009, 9.30am -3.30pm
Venue: Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa Cardiff
RSC Wales is pleased to announce that bookings are now open for a JISC project dissemination conference, focussing on the growing use of learner technologies and open educational resources in educational delivery.
Three different JISC funded projects, carried out collaboratively by HE and FE institutions in Wales, have been exploring the use of mobile technologies, social networking software, open educational resources and the use of customised search engines to facilitate learner-centric discovery learning. This conference presents the outcomes of these projects and invites delegates to debate the implications of their findings for the future of education, the changing roles of learners and teachers, and the emerging mixed economy of educational resourcing. The conference is being jointly hosted by the University of Glamorgan and Swansea Metropolitan University and organised in association with JISC RSC Wales.
