My first impression after arriving at the venue of INTED2014 (10th-12th of March, Valencia, Spain) was the conference’s size. I was immediately reminded of the organisers’ original promise of a truly international event with 650 delegates from 75 countries. The promise had been kept, and as a result here we all were in a massive […]

The 12th annual eLearning@ed Conference took “Authenticity Online”  as its theme – this allowed for a very broad interpretation and therefore a wide range of presentations.

In order to get the most out of the conference I had deliberately chosen to target events that focused on these specific topics: MOOCs Adaptive Learning Multi Media in Learning and Teaching Learning Analytics Learning space design […]

The University’s IT Futures conference returns this year with the theme of Disruption. It will take place on Thursday, 12th December 2013, 0930-1630, in The Informatics Forum. New technologies disrupt our ways of working, they disrupt our lifestyles and our settled habits. Sometimes this is good, sometimes not. Sometimes tiny factors turn out to be […]

The fifth eAssessment Scotland conference was held this year on 23rd August at the University of Dundee. Billed as “the UK’s largest conference dedicated to exploring the best examples of eAssessment in the world today”, this year’s theme focused on the potential role of social and participatory technologies in teaching and assessment.

Learning Analytics has rapidly become a “hot topic” in Higher Education. Our teaching and  learning activities online now generate “big data” and there is a need to manage and understand that data, to make best use of it at national, local, institutional and school level.  All sorts of work is being done on developing this […]
