‘Mind the gap’: doors close soon for conference proposals

3804570043_6dd94e7dbc_zThe closing date – Monday 7th March – is fast approaching for proposals to the 14th annual conference on Academic Practice with Technology, to be held at the University of Greenwich on 5th July. Mind the Gap will explore the ‘gaps’, real or perceived, in the contemporary educational landscape: e.g. between technology and teaching, learning and assessment, staff developers and staff practitioners, students’ expectations and achievement, and individual aspirations and institutional realities.

The conference organisers invite you to explore the role of academic practice and technology in identifying, avoiding, reducing or even exploiting such gaps; to share how you are ‘minding the gap’ yourself; to debate the impact of widening and narrowing gaps on teaching and learning; and to creatively address the tensions arising from them.

The conference is jointly hosted by the University of Greenwich and the London School of Economics and will take place on Greenwich’s World Heritage Campus.
