Call for abstracts | EDTECH 2016: ReConstituting TEL - Rising to the Challenge

Date: 26 – 27 May 2016
Venue: Law Society of Ireland, Education Centre, Blackhall Place, Dublin, Ireland

The events of Easter 1916 are of seminal importance in Irish history. What began as a small uprising in the centre of Dublin on Easter Monday set in motion a series of developments which ultimately led to Irish independence in 1922. The Government of Ireland has launched national and international program of events to reflect on the past 100 years, and to re-imagine our future under the following themes: remembering the past; reconciling and respecting all traditions; presenting Ireland to the world; imagining our future; and celebrating our achievements (www.ireland.ie).
The EdTech2016 theme ‘ReConstituting TEL: Rising to the Challenge’ affords us the opportunity to: reflect on the current state of TEL in Ireland in 2016; celebrate our achievements to this point; and consider the opportunities and challenges presented within an increasingly globalised, and uncertain world.
We invite you to contribute to this discourse from a range of local and international perspectives - pedagogical, research, innovation, policy and organisational - at EdTech2016 on May 26-27 at the Law Society of Ireland, Dublin (http://ilta.ie/edtech/edtech-2016).
