The conference theme: “The importance of developing a community to support learning is a well established idea. The virtual and physical learning spaces we build, as well as the ways in which we engage our students, are increasingly being influenced by our desire to create and support a learning community. The Fifth International Blended Learning Conference aims to explore the notion of community in its variety of forms. Themes include:
- Developing blended learning communities to support and enhance different aspects of the curriculum, e.g. employability, internationalisation, lifelong learning, learning that lasts, research informed teaching, student support and pastoral care, study skills and personal development, the student experience and the student voice
- Developing a community of blended learning practitioners
- Extending the blended learning community Within and across disciplinary groups For pre-university entrants With Alumni
- Theoretical perspectives on blended learning communities”
