Presentations at ALT-C 2012

We’ve just completed a very enjoyable pair of presentations at this year’s ALT conference in Manchester. The first of these was a programme-wide symposium called “Technology: the new mainstream?“, chaired by Carole Baum, and involving the projects at the IOE, Exeter, Bath and the University of the Arts. It focused on some of the challenging questions raised by the projects, leading to a lively panel discussion.

The second, called “Developing digital literacies in your institution“, was also chaired by Carole. This focused on the ideas developed by the projects that have resulted in change within the project’s institutions, and invited participants to think about how these might relate to activities in their own institutions. This was a cluster-based workshop, bringing together the IOE, the University of the Arts, the University of Greenwich and UCL.

Slides from both of these will be available from the papers, reports and talks page soon.

Update: the slides are now available.

Two presentations at Networked Learning 2012

Lesley and I have just completed two presentations at the Networked Learning conference in Maastricht that draw on the work of the project, both of which were well received.  Slides are available from the papers & talks link. Both of these have linked the project’s work to some wider debates – about understanding students’ authorship practices, and about understanding technology. Sadly we were scheduled against each other so I couldn’t see Lesley’s session, but the discussion in my session was certainly lively, raising some important questions about how we can and should go about researching these areas.
