OVERVIEW

Following on from a near sell-out in 2012, the “Designing Learning in the Digital Age” workshop and webinar professional development program will run again in 2013.  Children with Tablets - Photo by Michael Coghlan

As all Australians need to acquire the skills and education to fully participate in a global economy in a time which is being dubbed “the Asian century”, learners need to be able to actively curate and manage their own learning.  

This means that Australian education and training organisations need to be able to:

  • Identify and understand how global meta-trends are impacting education and training in this region
  • Design and develop learning experiences which challenge the current status quo in education and training
  • Utilise educational models which enable educators to design learning in the digital age which are unique for their learners

Originally based on the ten global meta-trends identified by the New Media Consortium, 2013 “Designing Learning in the Digital” participants will help identify the trends impacting education and training in Australia and its neighbouring region.

Modelling a ‘flipped classroom’ approach, participants will be required to undertake some of their professional development prior to attending the workshop through videos, readings and forums. 

This will allow participants to use their time together to collectively design and develop disruptive and transformative learning experiences.  Three webinars following the workshop will enable participants to consolidate and extend what their face to face learning.

Using creative and design thinking, participants will feel empowered to pitch and establish these new ideas within their own environments.  

To enable an effective workshop environment, places are limited to 50 people.

 

WHO SHOULD COME?

Educators and those supporting the education process from any sector (schools, VET, Higher Ed) that want Pew Research Centre Quoteto see change in the way education is delivered, and who see the value of networked learning.

It is expected that participants will already have skills in the use of educational and mobile technologies, and social media. You don't have to be a guru, but you'll need to know the difference between a hashtag and an asterisk, between following and being followed on Twitter, and ideally be used to creating and sharing content and/or media on the open web.

Handy (but not essential) would be an account on one or two (or more) social media sites eg: blog, podcast, wiki, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, LinkedIn or even Facebook Smile

 


BYOD:

To ensure participants have an interactive experience they are encouraged to BYOD (bring your own device) eg smart phone, tablet, laptop etc. Wireless internet access will be available.
