INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON TECHNOLOGY EMPOWERED LEARNING
14-16 February 2013
14-16 February 2013
Effective application of technology in the creative process of learning will enable establishment of high-impact learning solutions that specifically concentrate on teachers and learners.
The essence of this workshop is to discover the technologies behind effective learning tools and provide strategies to support learning technologies from design to implementation and practical point of view. At the end of the workshop, participants would have been equipped with tools for effectively designing, planning, implementing and delivering better quality e-learning materials with high-impact results. They are also expected to have learnt how to effectively use available learning resources to the greatest advantage, either as a student or as a teacher
This workshop is targeted at individuals and organisations who make use of technology tools for the purpose of teaching and learning. The workshop is an intensive training experience that will feature cutting-edge practical training on effective and comprehensive techniques, methodologies and tools to support learning technologies from design to implementation and practical point of view.
The number of available spaces will be limited in order to enable participants go through their own specific e-learning issues and needs with the experienced Consultants and Trainers and have the best ever hands-on practical experience. At the end of the workshop, participants would have discovered groundbreaking teaching and learning methods needed by teachers and students who who are serious about engaging in 21st-century approach. all participants will acquire the knowledge leading to a qualification in Corporate E-Learning, thereby making their teaching and learning skills recognized professionally.
The workshop shall feature international motivators and seasoned Learning Technology experts, who will address the following important rudiments of new generation learning:
* Experienced use of Moodle for knowledge acquisition from a student's perspective.
* Picking up those vital information that will re-ignite teachers' desire to teach in a new and innovative way
* Considering how to use Moodle within participants' own context
* Building Moodle courses based on their own requirements.as a learner or a teacher
