Reflections on the VDC Teaching & Learning Conference
- ‘the science of learning Strategy
- enhancing Teaching with technology
- engineering student Engagement
- developing the art of Assessment
- Managing with mathematical precision.’
The Opening Keynote Presentation was delivered by Dr Mark Strom whose background is across a number of sectors including primary, secondary and tertiary education. His session was titled ‘Decoding innovation and design (and how to make both happen)’. The main message that he communicated can be summed up in the line ‘Keep Calm and Share Best Practice’. At Trinity College, we are already doing this and if nothing else, those who attended the Trinity College Inaugural eLearning Conference can certainly vouch for this as the conversations have not stopped since this event took place.
Other sessions focussed on the themes of enhancing teaching with technology and increasing student engagement in the classroom.
