CFP: Satellite Exploratory Events 2017-18 – deadline 5pm on 23 March 2018

Dear School of Arts Postgraduate Research Students,

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 2017-18.

While these exploratory events can also be proposed by School academics, teaching and scholarship staff and administrative staff, we are specifically reaching out to you, as budding academics and teachers, with an appeal to apply. These events are a great opportunity to explore your interests as they relate to the intersection of technologies for pedagogy. 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 innovative ways in-class learning experiences can be blended with online activities in-between sessions. Or the ways in which the digitalisation of our research objects or methods might shift how we teach and assess our subject areas. These examples are not exhaustive, and there are many other possibilities.

Proposals are due by 5pm on 23 March 2018 and must include the following:

  • Event Title
  • Event Convenor(s) (name and short bio / link to web profile)
  • Event Description (no more than 300 words)
  • Requested funding amount and its purpose(s) (e.g. catering costs – please specify if Satellite funding will be complemented by 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.
