Flexible learning leverages the benefits of pedagogy and technology to provide an engaging, personalised learning experience that supports all students to achieve their potential. However, an effective flexible learning model requires consideration of the differing needs of academic and professional staff and students. This symposium aims to explore the issue holistically from all perspectives to inform whole-university approaches to overcoming challenges and enhancing the student experience.
To stimulate creative, responsive solutions and insightful dialogue, we welcome exploratory workshops and sharing of planned initiatives and work in progress as well as case studies of established and evaluated good practice. We are also interested in examples of where there were significant barriers and challenges to flexible learning and how they were overcome.
Who should attend?
Teaching practitioners including: heads of departments, academic programme leaders and developers, all lecturing staff, professional services staff supporting learning and teaching activities, and learning technologists.
