HEA Event: New places to learn: Flexible learning and online residency

The following event might be of interest to teaching staff. The Higher Education Academy are running an event in Oxford (also being live streamed) on the 19th April.

This one-day symposium will explore how technologies and the internet have opened up new ‘places’ in which learning can happen, and consider questions such as: How do students learn in these ‘places’? In what ways might, or should, institutions respond? What opportunities does ‘online residency’ offer in the sector’s increasing move towards flexible provision?

The symposium aims to:

  • consider ways in which students learn when they use the web as a ‘place’ in which they ‘reside’ both socially and academically;

  • consider the significance of this virtual ‘place’ for the HE sector as it seeks to move towards greater flexibility of pace, place and mode of delivery.

This event is free, and more information is available from the following link

If you'd like to discuss these ideas further, please email the Elevate Team (
