AARNet proudly sponsored the ACODE (Australasian Council on Open, Distance and E-Learning) Learning Technologies Leadership Institute 2013, held from 18 to 22 August.
The focus of the Institute is on meeting the leadership and management development needs of the next generation of leaders in tertiary education in relation to the use of technologies to support learning and teaching.
This is a professional development program. As well as attending presentations focusing on various concepts participants are given the opportunity to apply these concepts through a hands-on ‘Making the Case’ exercise. Groups of participants develop and present a case for a more strategic approach to the use of learning technologies under a selected institutional scenario.
Universities are seeking new ways to differentiate themselves and online education can improve the student experience, student retention rates and attract new students and staff.
Much was revealed during the ‘Making the Case’ exercise about how creative learning and teaching technologists need to be to effectively support and sustain the change to new forms of course delivery. And, because learning and teaching technologies rely on ICT connectivity, effective online course delivery also requires a greater engagement with University IT Services, IT Service policy and the use of learning analytics (coupled with business analytics).
