Teaching, Learning and Assessment in a Digital World

Visiting Professor Bob Harrison’s public lecture


In this public lecture Bob Harrison explored the challenges faced by teachers and learners using technology to extend and enhance learning and to engage and empower learners in a system whose design principles are no longer fit for purpose.

Bob’s eight grandchildren leave school between 2024 and 2038 and his presentation suggested we need a new generation of “paradigm pioneers” of education leaders and policy makers to ensure the education of these grandchildren will prepare them for life and for making a living in a digital world.
