How do digital technologies influence various dimensions of teaching and learning, such as contexts, mediations and effects? Cathrine Tømte, Professor at the University of Agder and Professor II at SLATE, will explore this topic during her upcoming guest lecture at SLATE.
Under the title “Digital transformations of education”, I would like to explore or demonstrate how digital technologies influence various dimensions of teaching and learning, such as contexts, mediations and effects. In so doing, I will adopt a theoretical framing that may help us to understand these transformations and present some empirical examples— or dilemmas— from higher education teaching.
The lecture itself will last for about 45 minutes, leaving ample time for discussion.
