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

University of Greenwich

This one day conference will be themed around the adaptation of academic practice for university staff working in a higher education sector that many expect to remain turbulent in the years ahead. Our keynote presenters were  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.

APT2018 sought to showcase new pedagogical and technological adaptations that practitioners, researchers, technologists, librarians, professional services staff and student-staff partnerships are implementing or evaluating to ensure that taught programmes remain flexible, sustainable and enhanced despite shifting market conditions and expectations.

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.

APT 2017 is focused on reimagining higher education. One that demonstrates its value to students and to society, and remains relevant to its needs and aspirations. Contributions were given from people who imagined or making the futures of higher education. People who were pushing boundaries, evolving teaching and learning practices, developing new curricula, creating new markets, analysing big data. People who were addressing challenges arising from the requirements of digital society, an emerging global economy and from the complex competitive world of the university, internationally.

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

Jointly hosted by the the University of Greenwich and the London School of Economics, it provided 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.
