Community-powered digital transformations in learning workshop
21 June 2012
University College London

How can we use digital tools to explore knowledge in new ways, and translate ideas and materials into digital arenas in order to gain new understandings? How can communities of digital participants transform their own learning, and that of others? What are the uses and implications of this for museums, schools, and universities? How can learning in the arts and humanities be enhanced by online creative participation?

Speakers include:

  • Amy Twigger Holroyd, Keep and Share
  • Sam Strudwick, Digital Editor, Amnesty International
  • Kate Lindsay, Learning Technologies Group, University of Oxford
  • Alison James, Head of Learning, London College of Fashion
  • Caroline Bassett, University of Sussex

The day will involve presentations, discussions, and smaller-group conversations.

The event, including refreshments and lunch, is free, but registration is essential. (Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council – Digital Transformations Programme).

Register here for this workshop.


The event takes place at the UCL Bloomsbury Campus, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT.

Registration and tea/coffee (10.30-11.00) will be in the Chadwick Building, rooms G07 + G08. See map.

Our main room (from 11.00) will be the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre in the Wilkins Building, the main UCL building, which is directly opposite the Chadwick Building.

In fact the clearest map is ‘map 2′ on this PDF which shows both ‘Chadwick’ and ‘Wilkins’ … if you’re unfamiliar with UCL, we recommend this map.
