- Creating new learning, teaching and assessment opportunities: play, experiment, discover, embed Learning Technology to enhance learner experience;.
- Wildcard: Learning Technology is everywhere… you are free to contribute any aspect of your research, practice or policy work.
Your 500 word proposal needs to show clearly how your session is going to address the relevant theme, and should where possible include recent research, case studies, practice or learner perspectives from any learning context including schools, colleges, universities and industry.
