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 their expectations of higher education. This seminar series is open to all and is free to attend. Follow on Twitter using the hashtag #LSENetED. Recordings of the events are made available to watch on the LTI YouTube channel.
