This in-person and online hybrid session will provide an opportunity for us all to reflect on the challenges and opportunities we have/continue to face during a global pandemic in relation to Teaching & Learning.
’We are in the midst of a technological era that is entirely disruptive. The pace at which technology, society and world economies are evolving has never been faster. We know that the future for our students, graduates and staff will be very different to that of today. So too, higher education must evolve and advance, to support our people and communities, to be truly relevant, and to deliver real impact” – David Fitzpatrick, TU (Technological University) Dublin President
We will explore the future of blended/hybrid learning with our key speaker Dr. Tony Bates with a pre-recorded presentation.
We will be welcomed via live stream with Donald Clark, EdTech entrepreneur and evangelist for the use of technology in learning. Donald will discuss challenges (political, economic, pedagogic and cultural) faced by Higher Education and the need for technology and change. He will also explore innovations in technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how we can exploit these technologies to transform our T&L practices.
A panel of teaching and learning experts will reflect on our speaker’s presentations and discuss the following areas:
We will discuss the impact the global pandemic has had on teaching and learning for all our students and staff within Technological University Dublin.
We will explore the challenges both academics and students face/have faced and how we have worked together to address these issues with people, processes, and technologies.
During this section of the session, we will be using interactive polling and audience participation via Vevox Technology.
