Call for Proposals: Satellite, deadline 29 February 2016

Satellite – the School of Arts group/subcommittee focused on technology-enhanced learning, broadly defined – is pleased to announce a Call for Proposals for exploratory events to take place this Summer Term 2015-16.

These exploratory events are an opportunity to explore more subject-, disciplinary- or problem-specific developments, innovations and issues related to technology-enhanced learning. You may, for instance, want to organise an event around alternative approaches to assessment that make use of techniques such as mobile video, social media or blogging. Or an event which considers the ways in which the digitalisation of our research objects or methods might shift how we teach and assess our subject areas. Or the indeterminate role learning technologies might play in your professional development as an early career researcher. These examples are not exhaustive, and there are many other possibilities.

Satellite is very keen to receive proposals for these exploratory events from postgraduate research students in the School of Arts (proposals can also be submitted by School academics, teaching and scholarship staff and administrative staff).

Proposals are due by 5pm on 29 February 2016 and must include the following:

  • Event Title
  • Event Convenor(s) (name and short bio / link to web profile)
  • Event Description (no more than 500 words)
  • Requested funding amount and its purpose(s) (e.g. catering costs – please specify if Satellite funding will be paired with other funds, e.g. from department or research centre)

Please submit your proposal to Scott Rodgers at Feel free to get in touch with Scott should you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss a potential idea further.
