How is online networking changing the way we learn? How can we best harness learning technology to shape the schools, universities and workplaces of the future?
In this free public lecture, Professor Peter Goodyear will answer these questions and others relating to networked learning: learning through communication and collaboration that is wholly or partially online.
The lecture will explore how tools and resources for networked learning can be improved, and how everyone can play a significant role in improving how, where and what they learn.
Professor Goodyear has been researching the use of computer technology in education since the early 1980s.
He is Professor of Education and Australian Laureate Fellow at the University of Sydney, and is co-director of the Centre for Research on Computer Supported Learning and Cognition.
He is also editor-in-chief of the journal Instructional Science, and his recent book titles include Technology-enhanced learning: design patterns and pattern languages (with Simos Retalis) and Students’ experiences of e-learning in higher education: the ecology of sustainable innovation (with Rob Ellis).
