Liz Jones - Teaching in Two Worlds? Digital technologies are dramatically impacting on our lives. They are changing how and what we learn. They are, at the same time, both an imperative and a means for change in teaching and learning at the university. How do a group of enthusiasts such as those who have participated in this seminar series contribute so valuably to this change?

Many thanks to Marcus Harvey, Sue D'ath, Irina Elgort, Norman Meehan, Sydney Shep, and Liz Jones for their contributions to this session.
