Technology Enriched Instruction – A Partners in Learning workshop for Higher Education Faculty

TEI HeaderMicrosoft and University of New England would like to invite colleagues from other universities and TAFE Institutes to the first Australian hosting of the Technology Enriched Instruction workshop on April 3 and 4 2014 at the UNE Futures Campus in Parramatta. Attendees with a range of teaching experience and roles are welcome to this free workshop-based event, which is designed to be of interest to anyone who would like to be well informed about key developments in learning, teaching and technology.

imageAs co-hosts, Microsoft and the University of New England have designed the event to help showcase both global developments and local enthusiasms, providing opportunities to explore developments from a range of perspectives and contexts.  This workshop, based on the TPACK framework, is designed to help TAFE and university faculty improve their use of technology in their teaching and instruction. It assists educators to develop competencies that will enable them to plan systemically for the selection, utilisation and evaluation of technology tools and resources in a pedagogically appropriate manner.

Day Two of the event will provide insights into trends and technology use in higher education lead by the co-hosts, Microsoft and UNE, which will also include a Futures Campus tour and a closing panel debate titled “Content knowledge isn’t important anymore.”
