Summer school focuses on role of technology in HE

21 June 2013

UCL is teaming up with the Institute of Education (IoE) to offer a two-day summer school looking at new and emerging forms of professional practice that relate to student learning in higher education.

Cruciform IT lab

Running on July 11 and 12 2013, the summer school will focus on the relationship between new technologies and changes to the roles, practices and experiences of students and staff.

Academic and professional staff working in learning and teaching will be given the chance to share and extend practice and network with new colleagues involved in similar areas.

Participants will:

  • Exchange ideas with colleagues from other institutions 
  • Explore their role and how this fits in with others
  • Reflect on their own practice and begin to develop plans for improvement
  • Form networks with colleagues that continue beyond the summer school

The cost of the summer school is £200, with a limited number of fully subsidised places for members of IoE and UCL staff. It is open to suitably qualified or experienced applicants, typically academic or professional staff working in higher education in a teaching or teaching-related role who have already undertaken relevant professional development (e.g. CMALT, accreditation as HEA Fellow etc).
