Our Spring meeting of the East Midlands Learning Technologists’ group is due to take place on Wednesday 18th May at the University of Derby.
Theme: Training and Development – approaches to training and development in the use of technology for teaching, learning and assessment.
The ability to effectively use technology to enhance teaching, learning and assessment is a learned and practiced skill. It requires (to a lesser or greater extent): the ability to use, implement and operationalise particular technologies; knowledge and understanding of the of the pedagogic effectiveness of technology; the ability to articulate the pedagogic rationale for the use of technology to learners; and the ability to support learners in their use of technologies.
During this event, we would like to explore approaches to training and development in the use of technology for teaching, learning and assessment that seek to address the varied requirements listed above as well as any other related contexts that have emerged from our thinking and experiences.
