Cloud and Crowd: Towards a collaborative future

Designs on E-Learning International Conference: 5th, 6th and 7th September 2012 University of the Arts, London

Cloud and Crowd: Towards a collaborative future

The eighth Designs on E-Learning international conference in the use of technology for teaching and learning in art, design and communication will be hosted by the Centre for Learning and Teaching (cltad) at University of the Arts, London on the 5th, 6th and 7th September 2012.

Following conferences hosted by Penn State University and then SCAD in Savannah, Georgia in the U.S, in 2011 the venue was Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland. For 2012 the conference is returning to London where the first was held in 2005. Attendees have been truly international, coming from the northernmost reaches of Scandinavia, to China, Korea, New Zealand and Australia, from the UK, several countries of Europe, and from North and South America.

As technologies continue to evolve, allowing students and lecturers greater flexibility, greater ease of use and unique possibilities for inclusion in the arts and design studio, the unique conference which is Designs on eLearning is an invaluable source of new and tested ideas and a forum for collaboration.

The format of the conference will be innovative, with barcamps, streamed sessions, discussions, performances and creative work. We are particularly interested in submissions by artists, museums and galleries and those involved in Art and Design practice in education. Joint lecturer/student submissions are also welcome.

Conference Themes for 2012:

  • Social Media
  • The Studio and Technology
  • Digital Literacy
  • User Generated Content
  • Collaboration and Community Building
  • Sustainability
