ECTC 2013, Brighton, UK – The Impact of Innovation: Technology and You
July 11 – 14, 2013
The First European Conference on Education was held alongside the Inaugural European Conference on Technology in the Classroom.
Our largest European event attracted 350 delegates from over forty countries in a program chaired by Professor Sue Jackson, Pro-Vice Master of Teaching & Learning at Birkbeck, University of London (UK), and Professor Barbara Lockee of Virginia Tech (USA), and to consider the conference theme, “Learning and Teaching Through Transformative Spaces”.
The plenary session saw a number of thought leaders in UK Higher Education, including 2013 keynote, Professor Mary Stuart (pictured left), Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln (UK), who looked at Social Mobility in the current climate of austerity. Professor Stuart also chaired a panel addressing the conference theme with Professor Rosemary Deem, OBE, Vice-Principal (Education) and Professor of Higher Education Management at Royal Holloway, University of London (UK), Professor Miriam David, Emeritus Professor at the Institute of Education.
A plenary panel was also lead by Professor Sue Jackson, and featured leading academics from Brighton’s two universities: Professor Yvonne Hillier from the University of Brighton, and Professor Valerie Hey and Dr Linda Morrice of the University of Sussex. The Technology in the Classroom featured speaker was Professor Catherine McLoughlin of the Catholic University of Australia, who looked at the rise of the MOOC, and its role in modern higher education.
We were very happy that the inaugural conference was so well supported by the local universities, and would like to extend our gratitude to the conference chairs, the featured speakers, and student volunteers from Blatchington Mill Sixth Form College for helping to staff the event.
