Enhancing Workplace Learning through Mobile Technology - webinar
Thursday 10 March 2016, 11.30 am - 1 pm AEDT
Adobe Connect meeting room: https://connect.csu.edu.au/wpltech/
Workplace learning and technology-mediated learning are two key foci for university education. However, they often remain separate discourses and practices, though the integration of authentic work-based activities and technology-mediated learning can provide important opportunities to bridge education and work contexts and build students' digital capacities, online professional identities and technology-mediated work practices.
This webinar will present preliminary findings of an OLT funded project, aimed at helping students, academics and workplace educators/supervisors make better use of personal, mobile technologies to connect learning and work. Participants will also be able to review a set of draft resources that form the mobile technology capacity-building framework developed as part of this project.
The webinar will be led by Prof Franziska Trede, Co-Director, The Education For Practice Institute, Charles Sturt University.
The resources were developed as part of a two-year research project funded by the Commonwealth Government Office for Learning and Teaching. They are part of mobile technology capacity building framework developed by: Franziska Trede (Charles Sturt University), Peter Goodyear (The University of Sydney), Susie Macfarlane (Deakin University), Lina Markauskaite (The University of Sydney), Celina McEwen (Charles Sturt University), Freny Tayebjee (Western Sydney University) and Patricia Parish (Western Sydney University).
