Technology in Higher Education - data analytics, the learning experience and next steps for MOOCs

Morning, Wednesday, 18th October 2017


“This seminar will discuss the use of technology in the Higher Education sector, and ways forward for developing its role in enhancing learning and teaching – as well as its role more widely in HEI business processes.

It comes amid increasing emphasis being placed on the use of technology and data-led teaching methods by HEIs, within the wider discussion on the effectiveness of different teaching methods in higher education, facilitated by developments to the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

Delegates will discuss the role of Big Data and data analytics for universities, including targeted marketing of prospective students, improving retention and personalising learning experience for individuals.

The agenda will also bring out the latest thinking on the use technology in teaching and learning, assessing progress in areas such as flipped and blended learning, and potential uses of virtual reality (VR). Those attending will also consider examples of best practice in developing a culture among the teaching community across all disciplines that supports the full potential use of technology. Further sessions will look at MOOCs, specifically emerging business models and uses including lifelong learning, marketing, pre-sessional support and credit-bearing modules.

We expect attendees to include key policymakers and stakeholders from universities, learning technology companies, data analytics software providers, online learning platforms, technology and education consultancies, students’ unions, academics and others with an interest in this area of policy and practice.”
