The Dublin eLearning Summer School 2016 is now open for registration!
The Summer School is now in its 14th year and since 2003 has provided participants with a forum through which to experience, explore and learn more about both existing and emerging technologies, and to consider how best to integrate them into their teaching, learning and assessment practices.
This year we aim to bring these conversations on further and consider the wider issues that can affect our ability, at both an institutional and individual level, to provide appropriate, high quality, flexible and online learning opportunities for our students. The theme is ‘Ethics and eLearning‘, a theme that is timely as many higher education institutions increase their efforts to exist effectively and appropriately in the online space.
The topics to be explored include copyright and elearning; the effective and ethical use of learning analytics; privacy and data protection; digital footprints; and academic integrity in a digital age. The format is informal and discursive, and all interested colleagues from the Irish higher education sector and beyond are very welcome.
When & where: The event is running over three days in DIT Bolton Street, 22 June to 24 June, from 10am to 4pm each day
Fee: €150 to cover lunch etc each day (waived for DIT staff)
And if you can’t make the event this year, keep an eye on #elss16 as we will be tweeting actively during the summer school, and will also link to relevant supporting information and interesting resources.
