E-Learn 2014 – World Conference on E-Learning

Martyn recently had the honour of presenting at E-Learn 2014 – World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education, an international conference organised by the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE) and co-sponsored by the International Journal on E-Learning. The conference was held in New Orleans, US and featured delegates from all over the world, with over 60 nationalities represented.

The paper focussed issues of best practice and methods of ‘blended learning’ piloted throughout 2013 during the EU Erasmus Intensive Programme ‘Media Culture 2020’.  Martyn’s paper also demonstrated how the methods piloted during MC2020 have been influential in developing co_LAB and Lincoln School of Film Media’s online learning strategies, informing and underpinning a number of recent collaborative projects. The article was published in the conference proceedings and is available through the EdITLib online academic database

Upon completing the programme, we each received a  certificate of accomplishment:
