Following on from the recent UCL E-Learning Champions Summits and Horizons event, this session on the afternoon of Thursday 17 July is designed to capture the views and opinions of UCL E-Learning Champion in order to baseline where we are now and to generate insights into what the next phase of e-learning at UCL should look like.
The workshop will be facilitated by Professor Stephen Brown (above). Stephen is professor of Learning Technologies at De Montfort University, a visiting fellow at the Centre for Distance Education at the University of London, International Programmes, a registered expert in Technology Enhanced Learning with the European Commission, former President of the Association for Learning Technology and a higher education consultant with over 35 years of experience.
The session is the first in a series of planned collaborative design activities that will ensure that key stakeholders are in the driving seat for the next phase of e-leaning futures at UCL.
This will be an activity based workshop in which participants will be invited and helped to draw a so called “rich picture” that depicts personal perspectives on the UCL e-learning scene. These rich pictures will expose inevitable differences in the way participants view things and the differences will be used to spark a debate about what needs to be done to take forward e-learning policy and practice.
No drawing skills are required to produce rich pictures and no preparation is needed for the workshop. Just turn up and be prepared to share your thoughts with colleagues. We will formally invite Champions to participate next week.
