Future of learning? Stephen Heppell's thoughts

Still working through the backlog of emails and other items since my return from holiday, hence the slowness at postings....

The final keynote presentation at our Teaching & Learning Conference in June was given by Prof. Stephen Heppell and he raised many interesting issues and presented a series of challenges for those of us working in higher education. Are we content to continue with the 'industrialised' or 'fast food' model of education that we have developed - one of modules, exams, large lectures, etc - or are we brave enough to imagine a more radically different future that embraces what we know about how people really learn and work?

Stephen's presentation is now available at our conference blogsite or by clicking here.
