Ada Lovelace Commemorative Lecture: The brave new world of technology enhanced learning: will we still need the teachers?
Thursday, 13 October 2016, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Amanda Jefferies, Professor of Technology Enhanced Learning, University of Hertfordshire
Ada Lovelace, the daughter of Lord Byron and collaborator of Charles Babbage, was a computing pioneer and is considered by many to be the first programmer. To celebrate her life and achievements, BCS Hertfordshire Branch is holding its third Ada Lovelace Commemorative Lecture. The evening will start with a description of the life and achievements of Ada Lovelace.
This was followed by a lecture given by Professor Amanda Jefferies.
Online learning materials so that students can learn anytime and anywhere, are already available in many schools, colleges and universities. So will there be any need to attend a university campus in the future? What will a future where technology leads learning, look like and how is the way that people learn, affected by the widespread use of technology?
In this lecture Amanda will discuss how technology use has grown, how it can support and enhance learning as well as the impact of technical advances, teaching design and delivery. Amanda will consider what the raised public awareness of online learning can offer in terms of satisfying a global desire for education at all levels and how research into student experiences, provides answers to some of the questions raised.
