  • Apt2019

    July 1, 2019 – July 2, 2019

    The seventeenth Academic Practice and Technology (APT 2019) conference will take place on Monday 1st July 2019, at University College London. The conference title is "The changing roles of educators in higher and further education: the shape of teaching today". It is co-hosted by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), University College London (UCL) and the University of Greenwich.

    The conference will explore how higher and further educators in 2019 are responding to meet the challenges of student expectations about teaching quality, and how their education should prepare them effectively for their future careers. Educators roles are changing and they are asking critical questions such as: How can we help our students to thrive in the face of a buffeting digital maelstrom? Where can technology create distinctive possibilities? Where might it actually hinder learning?

  • apt2018

    July 3, 2018 – July 3, 2018

    The 16th Academic Practice and Technology Conference will be held on Tuesday July 3rd 2018 at the Greenwich Maritime Campus in London.

    The conference title is "An uncertain future: adapting academic practice for an evolving digital world". Our keynote presenters this year will be Professor Bart Rienties, Professor of Learning Analytics at the Open University and Pierre Dubuc, co-founder of the French company OpenClassrooms, and one of the world's largest online education platforms.

    A one day conference co-organised by the University of Greenwich and the London School of Economics & Political Science, the programme explores new approaches and innovations in the use of education technology which are being adopted across the sector by higher education professionals.

    The theme of the 2018 conference will be the adaptation of academic practice, exploring how university staff involved in teaching and assessment are advancing their use of educational technology in an era of challenging and changing times for UK universities.

  • apt2017

    July 4, 2017 – July 5, 2017

    The future ain't what it used to be: inventing and re-imagining higher education practice 

    The future ain't what it used to be, uttered by the imitable Yogi Berra in 1974 who explained its meaning that times are different. Not necessarily better or worse. Just different. This year, APT 2017 is focused on reimagining higher education in the face of a rapidly changing and sometimes chaotic environment.

    We invite contributions from people who are imagining and making the futures of higher education. People who are pushing boundaries, evolving teaching and learning practices, developing new curricula, creating new collaborations or markets, analysing big data. People who are addressing the challenges arising from the requirements of a digital society, an emerging global economy and from the complex competitive world of the university, internationally.

    We seek contributions from practitioners, researchers, professional services staff and students on innovative (co-)curriculum, transformative approaches to learning, participatory approaches to teaching, learning, assessment and experience, and projects that have been designed to reimagine education, so that we can create a sustainable and viable environment for our institutions. To help us in our deliberations, we are delighted that this year’s keynotes will be given by Dr George Siemens, Executive Director Universiy of Texas Arlington’s LINK Research Lab, and Dr Ed de Quincey, Keele University.

    As always, the conference will provide an exciting opportunity to network with colleagues across the UK and abroad at the historic Maritime Greenwich Campus, a World Heritage site. 

     

  • apt2016

    July 5, 2016 – July 6, 2016

    The 14th annual Academic Practice and Technology (APT) Conference will take place on Tuesday July 5th 2016. 

    "Mind the gap: exploring institutional practices in the post-digital age" will focus attention on the ‘gaps’, real or perceived, in the contemporary educational landscape: e.g. between technology and teaching, learning and assessment, staff developers and staff practitioners, students’ expectations and achievement, and individual aspirations and institutional realities. 

    Jointly hosted by the the University of Greenwich and the London School of Economics, it will provide an opportunity for delegates and presenters to debate and explore the significant challenges for higher and post-compulsory education and training arising from the waves of rapid change in a post-digital age. The conference will be a forum where policy, practice and strategic developments can be explored, discussed and shared by practitioners and researchers in a vibrant and lively atmosphere on the university's World Heritage Campus.
