We are witnessing major change in the educational and economic landscape. High fees, unemployment, new working patterns and of course, the need to demonstrate ‘employability’.

At the same time, new practices and technologies are emerging. For instance, Massive/Little Open Online Courses (M/LOOCS), big data, semantic web and Open Badge technology together with a major shift in digital culture - all offering opportunities for learners to access learning in new ways.

The aim of this event is to explore these opportunities from the viewpoint of the learner/individual and develop the community of interest around these areas:-

  • How can we support the learner to take control of their own learning?
  • What infrastructure should/could we provide as institutions?
  • Do the concerns and priorities of our learners go beyond institutional requirements?
  • Can new open technologies be truly democratic, accessible and sustainable?
