Speaker: Professor Margaret Bearman, Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning - CRADLE, Deakin University
A large Australian tertiary institution with a history of distance education, Deakin University promotes digital innovation, with a focus on making digital learning as valued as on-campus activities. The Centre for Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) brings together research and practice to both inform and develop Deakin’s work but also the broader higher education landscape. This talk explores how research and practice can interweave and productively enhance each other. In particular, it describes one of Deakin’s key digital learning project strands and outlines the associated research that explores what it means to design, work and learn within online environments.
