Digital pedagogies: E-learning and digital humanities unconference

Digital Pedagogies

Digital Pedagogies is a free unconference which brings together people in e-learning and digital humanities to discuss the development of digital pedagogies in university teaching.

An unconference is a delegate-driven meeting with the agenda created by the attendees on the day.

Digital pedagogies are innovative methods of teaching, using ICT tools to facilitate and foster high-quality digital learning experiences. This event addresses questions of how teaching techniques can be modified and digitally enhanced to meet the challenges of virtual learning. It brings together people in e-learning and digital humanities, who often share similar research objectives, and offers opportunities to discuss current digital teaching techniques and to define areas for improvement and enhancement.

There is an open call for sessions on the topic of enhancing and developing digital pedagogies in any field of research, but spaces are limited so early attendance on the day is recommended.

To propose a session, please state in a few sentences why you want to come to the Digital Pedagogies unconference. You should indicate what task you want to accomplish, what problem you want to solve, what new perspective you want to understand, what issue you want to discuss, or what skill you want to learn. However: paper proposals are strongly discouraged! The unconference is for working and talking with others, not for presenting to a silent audience.

This unconference is hosted by the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities in partnership with the Higher Education Academy.

Attendance is free but this event requires registration.
