Online education expert Stephen Heppell helps eLearning Network celebrate 25 years


Professor Stephen Heppell will provide the keynote session at the eLearning Network’s 25th birthday celebrations in London on 6 December 2012.

Heppell, a professor in new media environments at Bournemouth University and visiting professor at the Universidad Camilo José Cela, Madrid, will host a session exploring the impact of technology on learning. Organisers say the programme is designed to celebrate the past 25 years of the eLearning Network whilst looking ahead to what the next 25 years might bring.

Rob Hubbard, chair of the eLearning Network, said: “We couldn’t be more delighted to be joined by Stephen Heppell. He really is at the forefront of using technology in learning and education, and has both witnessed and affected so much change in his career. His keynote is bound to be the highlight of the day.

“We really wanted to celebrate this momentous occasion, not just in our history but of the history of elearning in the UK. So much has happened in the past 25 years. And we’re looking forward to a short trip down memory lane, coupled with a look ahead at some of the very latest that learning technology has to offer both now and in the future. Oh, and the champagne and cake should also add a welcome note to the proceedings!”

Tickets are available on the eLearning Network site.
