Register for a one-day Technology Enhanced Learning Symposium - Sunday 27th August 2023

Technology Enhanced Learning Online Symposium 

How technology can transform learning environments for inclusive education

Technology has the power to transform learning environments for inclusive education, ensuring that all learners can achieve their full potential.

There is increasing interest in two areas:

a) Technology can enable anytime, anywhere access to learning environments. Examples include the use of online networks and communities, use of social media, MOOCs, open access resources and FOAMed.

b) Technology can enable learners to maximise their learning by creating inclusive online learning environments that respond to their diversity in age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin. Examples include the use of assistive technologies, presentation of information in alternative and multiple formats to enhance engagement.
