Academic Board Forum: The Future of Learning

The Future of Learning: How they want it, where they want it, when they want it?

Online learning, MOOCs, Open Education Resources, social media, flipped classrooms, blended learning, collaborative and practice based learning … What does it all mean for our courses, for our academics and for our students at UTS?

This Academic Board Q&A event was designed to stimulate the sharing of information and excite discussion among the UTS community on this very important topic. It was led by leaders in the field of new teaching and learning platforms.

Academic Board Chair's report

This panel and Q&A event took place on Tuesday 30 April 2013 from 9.30am to 12 noon. The panel was moderated by Associate Professor Paul Allatson Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning), Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and panel members included:

  • Professor Gilly Salmon, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning Transformations), Swinburne University of Technology
  • Professor Shirley Alexander, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Teaching, Learning and Equity)
  • Jade Tyrrell, President, National Union of Students
  • Jenna Price, Lecturer, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

There was large attendance of 220 people who were fortunate to hear presentations from, and ask questions of, a knowledgeable and experienced panel of leaders in the higher education sector. My thanks go to all those who helped to organise and participated in the event.

The forum was filmed due to the considerable interest shown by the University community. See event videos.

At the conclusion of the event, Jenna Price called for comments from the attendees.
