With the growing ubiquity of the Internet and its attendant culture of openness and sharing, profound changes have been taking place in teaching and learning. These changes have been compounded by the technological shift from “enterprise” to the consumer as the key force driving technical innovation.

Consider the following questions, which many institutions are currently wrestling with as they review their strategic direction:
What will the world of educational technology look like in a few years’ time if Microsoft are a niche supplier and Google, Amazon and Apple are the key players in the IT industry?
What new opportunities are created when you open up not just educational resources, but also research and institutional data, journal publications and underlying software?
How do we prepare for a world where BYOD, MOOCs and the flipped classroom are the norm, the number of HEIs is greatly reduced, and the very nature of the HEI as a concept has changed beyond recognition?

In this session Martin Hamilton will take the group though some recent developments from Loughborough University that may help to inform institutional thinking.
