In June 2016 (15th) the Mobile and Digital Technologies network will host a national conference on the use of technology to support ‘Flipped Learning’ in the post compulsory sector.
There has been considerable interest and use of Flipped Learning strategies across the FE and HE sectors as lecturers and teachers explore new and innovative ways to engage students in active learning strategies that move beyond traditional teaching approaches. ‘Flipped Learning’ can take many forms and shapes and it is increasingly evident that digital technologies will support and underpin such approaches in the future in ways that are only just beginning to be understood.
This conference will provide a space and opportunity for practitioners and researchers alike to share how digital technologies are supporting different forms of Flipped Learning, featuring case studies from each of the University federation colleges, along with the University of Hull itself. Unlike traditional conferences this event will model the use of Flipped Learning and all delegates will be assigned tasks and activities to complete before they attend the physical event itself. To facilitate and support this the network has commissioned the development of an innovative eBook which delegates will have access to before the event.
The event itself will take place at the Lawns Conference Centre in Cottingham (near Hull) on 15th June from 9.30-4.00. Professor Ale Ale Armellini will introduce the event with his keynote address, setting the bigger picture and inviting delegates to experience for themselves the transformational power of Flipped Learning.
Registration for this event will open shortly and we will also open a call for workshops/presentations from practitioners and researchers who wish to show case their own examples of how technology is used to support this model of learning.
Keynote speaker: Professor Ale Armellini (Director of Institute of Learning and Teaching in HE: Northampton University)
Professor Alejandro Armellini is the Director of the Institute of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education at the University of Northampton. The mission of the Institute is to enable transformational learning experiences through inspirational teaching. Ale’s key role is to provide leadership in the area of learning and teaching across all schools and services. Three aspects of Ale’s work are (1) the development, implementation and evaluation of Northampton’s Learning and Teaching Plan, (2) the development of a robust CPD framework for academic staff, in collaboration with the Head of Academic Practice, and (3) fostering evidence-based, innovative practices in both campus-based and online learning and teaching. Ale has extensive international teaching and programme development experience across different education sectors. Over the years, he has used, researched and refined the structured CAIeRO process (elsewhere known as Carpe Diem) and other evidence-based design-for-learning interventions to promote positive change in HE provision across modes of study. Teams under his leadership have researched the application of learning technologies in diverse academic settings. His PhD tutees research specific areas in the field of educational technology, pedagogy, openness and innovation. He is active in consultancy work globally.
That’s right! Representatives from some of the partner colleges will be at Jisc Digifest in Birmingham on Thursday 3rd March.
We will be delivering a presentation on the network and the work achieved so far. Pop along to Pod 2 at 10:30am to find out more!

We look forward to seeing you online soon!
There is an open online course available for all network staff in Higher Education. There are certainly opportunities here to engage with Mobile Learning as part of this course either as a contributor or as a learner.
FOS stands for Flexible, Open and Social Learning and is a CPD course for professionals who teach or support learning in higher education. FOS will be offered for the first time in July 2015 over 5 days, from the 13th to the 17th.. The course space will be available a few days before we start.

The University of Hull is currently offering up to 80 PhD scholarships starting in September 2015 and two of these are in mobile learning, supervised by Dr.
Kevin Burden from the Faculty of Education. One in particular is relevant to the work of this network since it seeks to explore how the partners (University and College) are using mobile and augmented technologies to support learning. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will research the initial formation of the network and will work with partners across the Federation to support and research aspects of mobile learning in their institutions. Further details can be found below:
In March 2015 the Digital technologies and Mobile Learning network will launch its first ever ‘Mobile March’ event bringing together mobile learning activities, demonstrations, training courses and much more in each of the partner organizations. The idea will be to provide a smorgasbord of mobile learning activities held in each of the different institutions across the month of March 2015. Watch this space for more news in the New Year
On Monday 20th October 90 participants from the University of Hull and Federation of Partner Colleges met at the Lawns Conference Centre for the launch of the Digital Technologies and Mobile Learning Network. The network aims to support teachers, lecturers and institutions in integrating the use of mobile technologies in teaching, learning scholarly activity and research.
During the one conference to launch the network delegates enjoyed a variety of different activities including presentations, keynotes, workshops and practical demonstrations from teachers and lecturers using mobile technologies in their own teaching.
Some comments from delegates:
Excellent opportunity to share ideas and interesting approaches to pedagogy across the institutions involved.
Some good discussions with like minded people who are willing to partner on a network on this kind.
The availability to actually meet new faces and create contacts. It is an important aspect since I am new within the area. Hopefully all the faces I have met today will be familiar soon. The most valuable topic was Padlet, really nice collaborative tool.
The time given to practice the apps/technology discussed really helps to cement the usage and confidence of using the technology.
