MEIPTA is proud to present The Social Learning Conference 2017, our first conference collaboration with OpenLearning. The conference will be held at The University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia from 27th to 28th of November 2017.
On behalf of the Organising Committee, we would like to invite all academics to become part of this community by participating and attending this conference. This year’s conference has an exciting line-up of experts from the Education field who will discuss and highlight a number of four main themes within the umbrella topics of social constructivism in computer supported collaborative learning, such as:
Community, Contribution & Connectedness
Fostering communities of practice, designing for social presence, and informing effective online facilitation.
Beyond Content & Quizzes
Moving beyond content transmission and testing towards creating online learning environments for active learning, co-construction of knowledge, and social constructivism.
Behavioural Learning Analytics
Using analytics to analyse student interaction, and to inform design, effective online facilitation, and tools for self-regulation. It may also encompass designing analytics to effectively support academic research.
Moving towards authentic assessment and documenting online learning experiences in e-portfolios.
