Event description

Description

The Computers and Learning Research Group (CALRG) is a research group based at the Open University which in October 2018 will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of its foundation. Located in the OU’s Institute of Educational Technology, with membership across the University we are proud to welcome staff and students who have an interest in researching the use of technologies in formal and informal learning. The group organizes weekly events throughout the year and runs a very popular annual conference in June. For details of current activities see http://www.open.ac.uk/blogs/CALRG

As one of the UK’s leading and longest running research groups in this area, we are looking forward to celebrating our 40th year with an event at the Open University on 19th October 2018 at which we hope to welcome back former members and friends. We are planning an exciting day of talks looking back at the group’s history, tracing the trends in our research over the years to help us look forward to the future of learning with computers.

Please register on EventBrite if you would like to attend and we will keep you updated with the final programme.
