Upcoming Seminars

Dr George Roberts, Oxford Brookes University
Heroic Ideals: Holding Tech Space for Learning
Feb 1st, 17:00-18:15, Room E

Abstract
What does it mean to “hold a safe space for learning” in the technologically mediated environments of higher education? I suggest in this seminar that the problem of holding space for learning through technology is generalisable to higher education and needs to be taken into account in any learning journey, or plan or curriculum: particularly those that assert the learner or world is or will be transformed by the endeavour in or through learning spaces. I address this question from two directions, dialogue-centred teaching in online spaces and narrative theories of learning.
