Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) Annual Conference 2010 Day 3

After the Conference dinner and disco last night I think it was a bit ambitious to expect too bi a turnout at 8.45am, but the presentation by David Longman (University of Wales, Newport) had over half a dozen delegates there! His presentation was entitled 'Towards a digital enlightenement: knowledge representation and creation in the post-internet university'. He put forward a thesis about the representation of new technologies in academia and discussed recognising and giving value to these new forms. The time sped by, but there were a number of questions from the floor, including a question about who was a good proponent of technology and David replied Michael Wesch as an example who he had met in Canada this year.
