ETUG 25th Anniversary Conference: Back to the Future June 21, 2019 Keynote Dr. Maren Deepwell from TRU Media on Vimeo.

Technology and Education: opportunities and challenges for equality

Beyond advocacy

Beyond Advocacy, keynote, ALT Annual Conference, 11-13 September 2018. This keynote poses the question ‘who shapes the future of Learning Technology?’. We will explore current thinking about what drives how we use technology in learning and teaching and questions the promise of tech that never quite delivers. For decades, technology has promised solutions to help us learn, teach, assess and care better, and yet these visions of the future are always just beyond the horizon.

But how do we move beyond that promise?

How do get beyond tech advocacy and realise the potential of our professional practice for the benefit of learners and the greater good?

To start answering these questions I will explore how professional practice has developed charted through new research into ALT’s CMALT accreditation scheme and share examples from recent collaborative work promoting equality in Learning Technology.
