Event description

Description

The day consists of a series of talks and interactive workshops centered around current innovations in digital learning. The morning sessions will consist of a brief introduction summarizing the events of the day, leading onto four workshops before lunch.

The first round of workshops offers the attendees the opportunity to hear about some of the latest research to have been conducted by School of Visual Simulation (SimVis), as well as the chance to design and develop their own digital learning resource. Topics such as the role of audio and video technologies in workforce development and developing digital learning habits will also be discussed.

After lunch, the four workshops will be run again giving attendees the opportunity to attend the ones they missed out on before lunch. The day will end with coffees and a talk about the importance of measuring the impact of digital learning.
