NetworkED: Technology in Education

"NetworkEd: Technology in Education" is a seminar series organised by LSE's Learning Technology & Innovation team (LTI). The series invites speakers from education, computing and related fields to discuss how technology is shaping the world of education. Technological developments, particularly the internet, have led to changes in the way institutions can deliver teaching,but are also impacting on students' skills and and their expectations of higher education. The seminar series will also be live streamed to enable an audience from around the world to listen and participate online.

From this year, NetworkED Seminars will now be on Wednesdays at 5pm - 6.30 with wine receptions afterwards
