EVENT - Community-powered digital transformations in learning workshop

University College London
21 June 2012

Digital transformations mean that cultural and media organisations now find themselves in a new environment in which communities of participants interact to create, curate, organise and support cultural experiences.

This workshop, organised by University of Westminster and UCL, is the fourth in a series of AHRC-funded events where practitioners and researchers come to consider innovative practices, and develop new ideas together. (All welcome – attendance at the previous events is not necessary).

This event considers: How can we use digital tools to explore knowledge in new ways, and translate ideas and materials into digital arenas in order to gain new understandings? How can communities of digital participants transform their own learning, and that of others? What are the uses and implications of this for museums, schools, and universities? How can learning in the arts and humanities be enhanced by online creative participation?

Speakers include:
  • Amy Twigger Holroyd, Keep and Share
  • Sam Strudwick, Digital Editor, Amnesty International
  • Kate Lindsay, Learning Technologies Group, University of Oxford
  • Alison James, Head of Learning, London College of Fashion
  • Caroline Bassett, University of Sussex
The day will involve presentations, discussions, and smaller-group conversations.

The event, including refreshments and lunch, is free, but registration is essential. (Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council – Digital Transformations Programme).
