Daugiau informacijos apie prof. dr. Mark Brown ir jo pranešimą:


This presentation tells the story of digital transformation of teaching and learning at Dublin City University (DCU) in Ireland. It anchors this story in a long history of educational technology over the last Century and asks if digital learning is now the solution, then what is the problem?

In exploring this question the talk reflects on the rhetoric reality gap between the state of the art and the state of the actual, and then shares a number of recent examples of digital learning innovations at DCU, which are designed to promote a distinctive and transformative student learning experience.

Set against a strong institutional commitment to transformation and the infusion of new digital technologies throughout the curriculum, we discuss several lessons for other institutions seeking to more strategically and purposefully harness the potential of new digital technologies for teaching and learning.

Finally, the presentation reflects back on the original question and some of the even bigger challenges and opportunities facing higher education in such rapidly changing and uncertain times.
