(It's about the student, stupid!)

FOTE11 will be held on 7 October 2011 at Senate House again and as always we are working hard to put on another great event to showcase trends and technologies that will impact teaching and learning in the coming 1 to 3 years. Taking into account the higher education reforms, the resulting rise in tuition fees and wide-spread student protest we want this year’s conference to help shine a light on the student.

We are hoping to answer a number of questions, such as:

  • Can the innovative use of technology reduce costs and/or deliver efficiencies to keep fees down?
  • Does new (or the creative use of existing) technology help deliver a student experience worth £9,000 a year?
  • What do students actually expect?

In order to address these questions we are looking to hear from policy makers, IT service providers and practitioners to find out how the future of education is being shaped, what the next big technology development could be and which current technologies impact on day-to-day teaching.

The conference hashtag is #fote11, so make sure to use it when you tweet & blog about the event.
