University of Hull Federation of Colleges Digital Technologies and Mobile Learning Network
‘Flipped Learning’ Conference 15 June 2016
to be held at the University of Hull, Lawns Conference Centre, Harland Way, Cottingham HU16 5 SQ
The Digital Technologies and Mobile Learning Network will be presenting a conference on ‘Flipped Learning’ on 15 June 2016 when the keynote speaker will be Professor Alejandro Armellini, University of Northampton, a noted expert on Flipped Learning.
The conference will be delivered as an interactive flipped learning experience with a range of related workshops delivered by Federation of College partners exploring, exploiting and evaluating flipped learning as a useful approach for engaged learning. The programme for the event and reply slips to be completed are available here.
One of the key issues to be tackled by the network, is to achieve ‘step change’ in the valid pedagogical use of technologies, is that good practice occurs in pockets within departments rather than across educational organisations. We aim to cause colleagues to re-evaluate their practice, through practically exploring the opportunities offered through the ‘Flipped Classroom’ approach to be used in the conference, requiring delegates to have read papers and ‘completed their homework’ prior to the event, so that they can see the benefits of use and the enhancement of their own knowledge and understanding on the day of the conference.
We hope that you and colleagues, whether they be digital technology novices, experienced users and support staff will find this conference to be of interest and provide interesting approaches to learning, teaching and assessment using flipped learning approaches. Please note that it would be helpful to bring a mobile device to access the interactive opportunities provided. We will have a limited number of devices for those colleagues who do not have their own.
Information and/or materials for specific workshops will be sent out after 20 May. We hope you will be able to join us and look forward to hearing from you. We would be grateful if you could please disseminate the information to other colleagues who may be interested.
