TELedvisors September Webinar: Sharing lessons in educational technology
24 September @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST
Sharing lessons in educational technology: what can schools and universities learn from each other?
Many students go from school into tertiary education, but what is their experience of educational technology as they make that transition? How can we draw from each others’ work to improve learning environments and match students’ needs and expectations? What can teachers and researchers working in schools and universities learn from each other?
In this online panel session, four people who work at the crossover between universities and schools will talk with us on what they see as common ground and on where innovations in practice and technology are ready to be shared.
This webinar is offered to the TELedvisor communities and also to those who would ordinarily be attending EdTechPosium 2020 in the ACT. This year’s EdTechPosium conference has been cancelled, but we hope to meet face-to-face next year, with Canberra Grammar as our venue. Meanwhile, enjoy this online taster on one of the conference themes.
