Presenter: Dr Nicola Pallitt, Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching
Format: Webinar on 9 November at 1 pm (SA time)
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? This year the AECT (Association for Educational Communications and Technology) conference organisers decided to break this code with their 2016 theme ‘Learning from Las Vegas’. In this reportback session Nicola will share what happened in Vegas and share some reflections and learnings related to this conference experience. Over the past year, the AECT has made a significant effort to promote scholarship, best practices, and leadership in the creation, use, and management of technologies for effective teaching and learning. e/merge Africa recently became an affiliate organisation. This session will also discuss what this means for e/merge Africa members. This reportback is therefore also a virtual celebration – come and join the party.
Dr Nicola Pallitt is a member of the e/merge Africa team. She enjoys networking and meeting EdTech practitioners and researchers from across the globe. Nicola is passionate about online facilitation, social media and educational technology in general. She also co-teaches on postgraduate courses in Educational Technology in the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching at the University of Cape Town.
