I know a few of us attended and spoke last year and found it quite a good conference - and on our doorstep :-)
The Empowered Learner?
Friday 16th December 2016 at Sheffield Hallam University, UK
#SocMedHE16: The Empowered Learner? will build upon #SocMedHE15’s Finding our social identity theme where we established our common interest in developing our understanding of social media for learning in HE.
This year we ask questions: are we empowering students by adopting and adapting social, open, mobile and networked learning and media? How critically are we shaping the opportunity that is emerging? How sure are we that the social, open and networked space, with all of the autonomy it suggests, is good for our students?
The conference will reflect a variety of positions including the student view of empowerment, the academic and teaching view, and the perspectives of support staff and strategic managers. We are particularly keen to receive proposals from students, and have an incentive to encourage this.
Please refer to the conference site for further information about the theme and for a selection of indicative topics.
Proposals should be based on evidence and experience of academic, or strategic practice; in any of the following formats:
· Short papers
· Thunderstorm presentations
Please refer to the conference site for further information about the conference formats.
Accepted submissions will be eligible for writing up and inclusion in the #SocMedHE16 conference proceedings.
Accepted presenters will be encouraged to develop an artefact with creative commons licensing to accompany their submission, these will be made openly available during and beyond the event.
Submission deadline: Midday Monday 16th May 2016
To submit, complete the form on the conference site SocMedHE16_submissionform16 you will need a title, 50 word abstract and 500 word summary and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org://blogs.shu.ac.uk/socmedhe/
The University of Staffordshire have created their own
ASK breaks the whole assigment task - which can seem daunting to students making the transition to HE - into smaller, more manageable steps and helps students with their planning and time management. It also directs them to sources of research information which they may not be aware of and should therefore help improve the quality of their research and final assignment work.
