You are warmly invited to attend a short seminar on Networked Learning, delivered by Dr Ben Kehrwald, Senior Lecturer and Academic Developer in the Learning and Teaching Unit at University of South Australia. Ben is visiting Cardiff prior to presenting at the 9th International Conference on Networked Learning in Edinburgh the following week.
Ben will be discussing how Networked Learning can support learning which is (in some degree) ‘embodied’ in the form of human movement, physical manipulation or other activities which are the product of brain-body connections? Professional practice is ‘embodied’ in some degrees, and therefore professional degree programmes must cater for learning outcomes related to embodied professional practice.
If you would like to attend this free seminar please complete the online registration form below. Lunch is available from 12:15, with the seminar starting at 13:00.
Networked Learning is ‘learning in which C&IT is used to promote connections: between one learner and other learners, between learners and tutors; between a learning community and its learning resources.’ (Goodyear & Networked Learning in Higher Education Team, 2001).
