Evaluation report (word) on Innovating e-Learning 2007
The 2007 JISC online conference, Innovating e-Learning 2007: Institutional Transformation and Supporting Lifelong Learning, followed on from the highly successful 2006 conference. The themes of this year’s conference highlighted two very different perspectives on e-learning – the part technology plays in institutional change and the more personalised view of the lifelong learner. The themes were:
- Institutional transformation
- Supporting lifelong learning
Conference introduction: The conference was opened by Alun Hughes, Director of Learning and Information Services at UHI Millennium Institute in Inverness. Alun is also chair of the JISC Learning and Teaching Committee and Secretary to the Board of IMS/Global Learning Consortium.
Theme 1: Terry Mayes, Emeritus Professor at Glasgow Caledonian University, Dr Mike Docker and Dr John Guy, The Sixth Form College, Farnborough
Theme 2: Robin Mason, Professor of Educational Technology at The Institute of Educational Technology, The Open University
The final presentation was given by Oleg Liber, Professor of e-Learning and Director of the Research Centre for Educational Technology and Interoperability Standards (CETIS), University of Bolton. He is also Director of the JISC-CETIS service, a formal research centre, which provides a service to JISC called the JISC-CETIS service).
The conference took place in an asynchronous online environment and attracted delegates from further and higher education in the UK and overseas.
