A story of an experimental learning laboratory...


Published on

Aberystwyth University
6th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference
11-12th September 2018

Over the last four years the Disruptive Media Learning Lab has evolved and has strived to reposition and reconfigure education at Coventry University (CU) within the rapidly changing technological, social, economic and political contexts shaping the learning landscape. The lab has created a safe space and cultivated a culture in which open collaboration and innovation are the key attributes of its research, development and pathfinder projects. As a sandpit and incubator of exploratory and experimental teaching and learning practices, the lab draws together a multidisciplinary team of collaborators and wider users of our work, to drive lateral thinking and radical approaches to address the challenges facing higher education.

Within this context, the lab focuses on how both mainstream and alternative approaches and technologies are explored, repurposed and remixed towards conceptualising a more hybrid and open approach to teaching and learning, in order to meet a wide range of stakeholders' needs and expectations.

This talk seeks to act as a catalyst for change, instigating an alternative mindset and creative attitude to challenge the existing status quo, to open up education and empower students and staff to re-model existing and own their teaching and learning practices in a networked age.
