The First International LAMS Conference: Designing the Future of Learning

Conference Themes

The main theme for the 2007 European LAMS Conference is again Designing the Future of Learning.

What tools, pedagogies, teaching and learning strategies do we need for the future? Where does LAMS fit within the new models? What can experience with LAMS tell us about teaching and learning? How is LAMS shaping up? What are the challenges for individuals and organisations? Where will Learning Design standards take us now? What can we learn from efforts to create generic learning design patterns? We expect that during the conference there will be many opportunities to share lessons learnt with LAMS from all educational sectors.
