Seminar Objective
The last 20 years have seen the biggest transformation we have ever witnessed in the way we communicate and deliver knowledge. ICT impacts every aspect of our lives and social media plays a major role in the way we interact with one another. The potential for higher education to transform the entire process of knowledge delivery is enormous. The seminar will offer an overview on all there is to know about MOOCs as well as insight into a recent study See the Future to understand some of the key issues facing higher education. It will look at lessons learnt from a number of concrete cases in the broader context of innovative teaching and learning in higher education. Finally there will be a session on how education and learning styles can be adapted for millennials.
