50 Years - Engaging with the future
Fifty years ago who would have envisaged the role digital technology would have in education today? We might struggle to predict what the education landscape will look like in 10 or even 5 years time, but we do know what we are doing today and how that affects our practices and the outcomes for our learners. Share your insights, thoughts, and even difficulties in using digital technologies for blended, flexible and elearning with your peers in our very own WCELfest.
Registrations for next years WCELfest2014 are open and we are seeking proposals and expressions of interest for sessions. Our University will celebrate 50 years and while we cannot predict what the next 50 years will hold, we do know what we are doing today and how that affects our practices and the outcomes for our learners.
A university for the future: Digital Literacy @ Waikato
Technology is changing at such a pace that it is important that everyone includes digital literacy in their professional development. We all have the capability to participate in the digital world if we are willing to invest in ourselves to ensure we are well equipped for the digital age.
