Wednesday 23rd November 2022

09:00 – 09:15 – Conference opening and welcome

09:15 – 09:45 – Neil Mosley, Education Consultant specialising in digital and online education and learning design

One of the ways in which students report the use of digital technologies playing an increasing role in their education is through viewing content online such as recorded lectures and taking part in live online seminars or lectures. However, the amount of students reporting engagement in asynchronous, interactive and collaborative activities continues to be relatively low. There are undoubtedly a range of challenges for educators and for students around online asynchronous activities that contribute to this. In this talk, Neil will discuss ways of thinking about designing and creating the conditions for asynchronous online interaction and collaboration and address some common challenges for students and educators

09:45 – 10:30 – Dr Ian Robson, Associate Professor, Northumbria University

Student panel. This session will focus on visual environments for co-enquiry, covering Talis Elevate directly, but also things like gamified environments.

10:30 – 11:00 – Kayleigh Jane, Senior Product Manager and Louise Ho, Senior UX Designer, Talis

Join Louise and Kayleigh as they give a short explanation on our product development approach in Talis.  They will walk you through how we have a customer led approach to our product development, why not everything we discover moves into development and how you can also be involved in helping us shape the vision of Talis products.  

11:00 – 11:15 – Break

11:15 – 12:00 – Angela Rhead, Senior Curriculum Developer, Keele University

Join Angela to reflect on the affordances and challenges of using synchronous collaborative annotation to offer differentiated activities in an online PG Cert. After an introduction to the development of the strategy, resources, and feedback, Angela will share her lessons learned, her plans for the coming semester and continuing conundrums, with an opportunity to consider possible solutions and strategies.   

12:00 – 12:30 – Jamie Wood, Professor of History and Education, University of Lincoln

In this session, Jamie will introduce some of the key findings of the QAA-funded Active Online Reading project ( Jamie will talk about what we found out about students’ online reading practices and how they are taught to read in digital environments in higher education. Jamie will also introduce some of the resources that were produced as part of the project and outline how we plan to develop this work in future.

12:30 – 13:00 – Mary Willis, Senior Lecturer, University of Lincoln

In this session join Mary Willis as she discusses how she has used SAGE Catalyst in her teaching. Mary’s students are often on work placement and therefore not always in a lecture theatre making it very important that students feel they are getting an opportunity to collaborate and explore resources together. Mary will explore how she has engaged her students with the appropriate reading from the SAGE Catalyst catalogue and brought the resources into Talis Elevate and will discuss the impact this has had in her department and with her students.

13:00 – 14:00 – Lunch

14:00 – 15:00 – Sam Parr, Learning Technologist, University of Leicester, Aimee Merrydew, Curriculum Developer , Keele University and Mary Jacob,  Lecturer in Learning and Teaching, Aberystwyth University

In this session, we take a critical look at the evidence from social reading projects and consider how we can use collaborative annotation to engage students. Learning technology professionals from several HE institutions share their observations from embedding social reading in their practice.

15:00 – 15:45 – Matthew Weldon, EdTech Success Consultant, Talis

Learning & Teaching: A Roundtable Discussion with the Talis Community. Learn from colleagues across the HE sector and share your own experiences of teaching and learning in this interactive discussion session, led by Matthew Weldon (EdTech Success Consultant).
