Join us in the Disruptive Media Learning Lab on 16th November for a day of exploration into the University Remixed.
The day will explore what a Remixed University might look like, with guest keynotes from Jesse Stomell and Martha Burtis.
This will be a hands on opportunity to work with Jesse, Martha, the DMLL, and colleagues across the University to reimagine what a higher education experience in the 21st century could become.
