Humanising Online Pedagogy
Friday 23rd May 2014
The Arbour Room, Hope Park, Liverpool Hope University
For many of us the digital age seems to have long since arrived. Yet our social, cultural and particularly our educational institutions are struggling to adapt. There are a range of practical and philosophical issues at stake. Practical considerations include how to engage students with truly blended learning, and how inclusive technological mediations and interventions can be. But such practical concerns are themselves predicated upon deeper questions about the nature of knowledge in the digital age, and whether physical presence is an inalienable aspect of pedagogy.
This one-day workshop will provide a showcase for recent work undertakenby the Philosophy of Educational Technology group at Liverpool Hope University, while also drawing together other partners interested and involved in this conversation.
Funded by BERA (British Educational Research Association), PESGB (Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain), and hosted by Liverpool Hope University, this event will support the wider discussion of Philosophy of Technology as it relates to pedagogy.
