The Future of Learning: How they want it, where they want it, when they want it?
Online learning, MOOCs, Open Education Resources, social media, flipped classrooms, blended learning, collaborative and practice based learning … What does it all mean for our courses, for our academics and for our students at UTS?
This Academic Board Q&A event was designed to stimulate the sharing of information and excite discussion among the UTS community on this very important topic. It was led by leaders in the field of new teaching and learning platforms.
