IMG_4614Dr Christopher Wiley was one of the Keynote speakers at the Transforming Technology Enhanced Learning (TTEL) Conference held in the Forum at the University of Exeter on Friday 17 June 2016.

Speaking in the Forum’s 400-seat Alumni Auditorium, Dr Wiley delivered his presentation, ‘Enhancing Student Engagement Through Electronic Voting Systems (EVS): Innovative Pedagogies and Creative Applications’, to an audience of around 90 academic staff from the University of Exeter and nearby higher education institutions.

Dr Wiley’s keynote discussed a range of applications and pedagogies with which students may be engaged through EVS, illustrated with various interactive audience-based tasks. Later sections of the talk also considered how EVS may be used in combination with a number of other popular learning technologies.

The one-day conference, designed to promote and disseminate good practices in transforming learning through technology-enhanced teaching, comprised a series of alternating keynotes and parallel workshop sessions.

As a Distinguished Educator with Turning Technologies (one of the event’s sponsors) since 2012, Dr Wiley has recently given presentations and workshops on learning and teaching at several universities across England, as well as writing a report on using electronic voting systems in arts and humanities teaching, published by the Higher Education Academy.
