Free Event: Mobile Learning in Higher Education

Mobile Learning in Higher Education - the 1st LearnHigher M-Posium

This one-day event aims to gather researchers, and other creative practitioners whose work focuses on mobile learning. The aim of the m-posium is for practitioners and guests to share good practice and to learn from the key themes that emerge from individual experiences.

The symposium will be structured around all contributors leading a discussion outlining their experiences and sharing their successes. We will also be exploring the difficulties encountered along with issues around the further embedding of good m-learning practice. The event is being supported by the Information and Computer Sciences Subject Centre who will be talking to us on the day about the national picture.

Contributions from the day will be documented and collated into a printed brochure to be distributed across the sector informing others about developments in m-learning and issues for consideration in the embedding of m-learning practice. As well as this valuable resource of collective experiences, we will also produce Podcasts and videos from the event to be disseminated via the LearnHigher website.
