This is an exciting time for teaching and learning at ANU, with new teaching spaces offering an opportunity to re-think how we approach education. This interactive panel discussion will debate the key issues facing teaching staff at ANU and across higher education. This session will include innovative academics from across the university along with Professor Venville, and discuss the opportunities, challenges, and futures for technology-enhanced learning and teaching — and beyond.
