2017 Special Focus: New Media for New Learning

Learning has always involved media. Textbooks, student workbooks, teacher talks, and, indeed, the traditional classroom are all media. The forms of pedagogy have always to some degree been creatures of media. What then is the role of new, digital media on pedagogy? To what extent do digital media reproduce or transform traditional pedagogies—for instance, the e-textbook, the teacher lecture in the “flipped classroom”, traditional summative assessments? Or, in what ways might they support new relationships of learning, including collaborative learning, peer-to-peer learning, multimodal learning, and recursive formative assessment? As well as its usual broad range of themes, this year’s conference will explore the affordances of digital media in online and blended learning environments. Our key question will be, how do media and pedagogy interact?
