Conference Theme

The late 1990s saw the emergence of e-Learning. Many schools and institutions have embarked on campus-wide initiatives that comprised content-driven and technology-enhanced pedagogy until the advent of Web 2.0. Now, however, the educational model is undergoing a complete change of approach and both the blended learning model and participative learning have become more possible and more meaningful, especially when combined with the changing profile of Gen Y students.

The conference theme 'we-Learning: Content, Community and Collaboration' recognises these pervasive and rapid changes that are having a profound impact on education and society. Education at all levels plays a central role in shaping the way these changes affect the economy, society and a new generation of knowledge workers. Knowledge and content are now a touch away and the new class room has no physical boundaries. People and resources are linked across borders allowing for new types of collaboration. What does this mean for learning and teaching in tertiary education? This conference explores the paradigm shift from e-Learning to we-Learning and the broad consequences for education in a changed world.

Submissions will be reviewed on the basis of an extended abstract.
