Centre for Research in Digital Education 4th Annual Research Symposium

Keynote speaker will be Professor Mark Brown who is Director of the National Institute for Digital Learning at Dublin City University.

Professor Mark Brown’s main research interests are in the areas of digital learning, blended education, online delivery models, including MOOCs, learning design, effective pedagogy, academic development, higher education, quality enhancement, the nature of the student learning experience, and educational policy and leadership.

Mark helps to coordinate the Digital Learning Research Network and leads the Policy and Strategy Expert Group as part of the EMPOWER programme, and was an active member of both the HOME and Score2020 European funded projects.

In 2015, Mark was a co-author of the report funded by the international Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) on Quality Models in Online and Open Education Around the Globe. In the Irish context, Mark was a member of both the Y1 Feedback and Student Success Toolbox projects funded by the National Forum. A notable feature of Mark's research is a deliberate effort to ensure his work is critical, globally connected and locally relevant, with a strong emphasis on transforming lives and societies -- anchored in the concept of transformative leadership.

All welcome. This is a free event, though registration is required via Eventbrite.
