Update 20/2/20 - Please note this event has been postponed.

If you have registered to attend as a delegate or have submitted a proposal to present we will be in touch in due course.

TILT is happy to announce the second keynote to this year’s Festival of Learning. Professor Stephen Downes will take centre stage as the event’s second keynote presenter. Professor Downes will join us from the National Research Council of Canada, and he will explore online active collaborative learning.

Professor Downes is a leading voice in online and networked learning and melds theories of education, new media, computer technology—and the principles of Collectivism—to explore learning as a collaborative, networked experience.

This year's TILT Festival of Learning explores pedagogies that encompass active, collaborative learning (ACL), which involves students working together towards shared learning goals, collaborating in pairs or small groups inside and/or outside the classroom and in-person and/or online.

The 2020 Festival of Learning is particularly special because it offers the opportunity to celebrate the 5th birthday of TILT, and the recent launch of University, reimagined.
