On 15 February 2008 Location: London, UK "New Perspectives on Knowledge Representation and Communication"
Conference details: Date: 19-20 June 2008 Location: London, UK
The aim of this conference is to explore multimodal perspectives on learning. It will build on and develop a growing body of multidisciplinary research, including studies in conversation analysis, linguistic anthropology, ethnography and social semiotics.
• Through parallel paper presentations, plenary panel discussions and keynotes, questions and debate will be opened up around modes, media and technology: What does it mean to learn using the potentials and constraints of different modes, media and technologies?
• Curriculum, pedagogy and assessment: What does multimodality mean for curriculum, pedagogies and forms of assessment?
• diversity of learning environments: What does it mean to make multimodality in different social, cultural, modal, medial, formal, informal, global, and local environments for learning?
