#SocMedHE17: Making an impact
Tuesday 19th December 2017
at Sheffield Hallam University
social media for learning in HE conference: #SocMedHE17: Making an impact, considers the role that social media - when used in formal and informal learning contexts - can play in addressing
the major challenges currently being faced by Higher Education. This conference is accepting submissions from students, academics and managers from
national and international HEIs.
The pressures on universities are hard to ignore. In the UK, the introduction of the Teaching
Excellence Framework (TEF)
and its core metrics – employability, teaching quality and retention – directly influence the direction of university strategies; while the National Student Survey (NSS)
reveals specific contextual challenges that demand attention. Internationally, the titles may be different, but the pressures will be similar.
For the full call please visit: http://go.shu.ac.uk/socmedhe.
#SocMedHE17 encourages submissions (research,
practice or discussion papers) that provide evidence of educators and students using social media to make a positive impact on these challenges in formal
and informal learning environments. Indicative themes include:
engaging, stimulating and challenging learners
reaching and engaging different groups of learners
innovative ways of meeting learning outcomes and enabling learning gain
enhancing employability outcomes
building staff and student digital capability and confidence
scaling up excellence for broader impact
