The NCUP are delighted to be holding their Annual Education Event, with a talk by Professor Diana Laurillard. This event is open to members and non-members of the NCUP.
Professor Diana Laurillard is a world-renowned Professor of Learning with Digital Technologies at the London Knowledge Lab, UCL Institute of Education. Her research includes large-scale online communities of teacher-designers, and the use of specialised digital course design tools to enable teachers to create and share new pedagogies for using learning technology.
Diana is a Co-Investigator for the Centre for Global Higher Education (CGHE)’s local higher education engagement research programme in addition to she is currently running two MOOCs on teacher development in digital course design.
There are very significant changes taking place in UK universities with more and more providing Massive Online Open Course to anyone who wishes to register. Usually, there are no previous qualifications required. MOOCS, many of which are free, are being offered by all the well-known universities across the world now enabling people from all backgrounds to improve their knowledge and skills in many subjects and professions.
This lecture will be of interest to any who are interested in how the Education World is changing through the use of the Internet, MOOCS and other technological developments.
Why Should Higher Education Be Able to Make Learning at Scale Feasible Through Technology?
Professor Laurillard's talk will draw on current projects that investigate the use of Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC) technology to act as part of a blended learning approach to the large scale global demand for Higher Education. The contexts include teacher professional development, and the professional development of disadvantaged groups of young people in migrant and refugee communities.
Join us for a light lunch at 1.30pm, in the heart of London's West End in Foyles flagship Book Store in the Charing Cross Road.
