Topic: Digital Learning and the Future of Education
Speaker: Tom WorthingtonIn January Tom completed a masters in educational technology in North America, studying the design of on-line mobile courses and use of e-portfolios (Worthington, 2016). He will discuss the experience of being an international on-line student and the implications for Australian Higher Education.
