A programme of seminars and practical workshops to inform, inspire and excite staff about technology-enhanced learning at Strathclyde.
The intersection between pedagogy and technology is a fertile ground for innovation, discussion and learning.
In the age of web 2.0, virtual learning and digital campuses, many advocate the importance of ‘pedagogy driving technology’. Yet, few would argue with the fact that digital technologies are disrupting long-established approaches to teaching and learning. Some even believe that – by accelerating the trend towards ‘deep’, 'flexible' and ‘personalised learning’ – digital has given birth to new pedagogies.
There is, however, a middle way that takes account of both digital as a catalyst for innovation in teaching and learning, and the continued importance of long-established approaches to education. This seems to be in keeping with Strathclyde’s strategic commitment to ‘seamlessly [blend] physical and digital environments for all students’.
