A Focus on Flexible Learning
Expectations of modern learners include technology use in learning and teaching, flexible learning environments and programmes that allow anywhere anytime learning. The conference focus on flexible learning aims to illuminate learning and teaching research and inquiry that steps beyond the expectations of a 21st century learner.
Here, we move beyond questioning flexible learning to embrace its extraordinary potential. We seek to understand how educators are approaching wicked challenges of access, equity and ubiquity of learning.
Here we turn our attention to matters of curriculum, pedagogies and practice that have the power to disrupt conventional methodologies when augmented by new technologies and new thinking.
Flexible Pathways is about transitions and the challenges of bridging those transitions for learners: transitions within learning pathways, across sectors, and between sectors.
