In this talk, Russell will highlight some of these key technologies with particular focus on feedback, the flipped classroom and other forms of blended learning. His talk will be full of practical examples focusing on simple-to-use technologies that can really impact on the way we teach and deliver our learning. Russell will also highlight some of the recent research he has done around these technologies.
