Event description: 

The idea is simple: bring together people who are thinking about “designing for education” from many perspectives and give them a chance to discuss and debate topics that matter to all of them. Some of the speakers are interaction designers, while others are conducting research into learning or teaching real-world classrooms. We believe they should be sharing their insights, so this is a chance for them to do so, while the audience listens in and asks questions.

We will be covering Engagement and Rewards, Student Decision Making and Social Interaction and Collaboration as our discussion topics.
