In early July 2017 the NIDL was pleased to be a sponsor of the World Conference on Computers in Education. In addition to several DCU staff presenting papers at the conference the NIDL hosted a table explaining some of our work and also promoting the forthcoming World Conference on Online Learning which will be held in Toronto in October.
A feature of the world conference in Dublin was a special debate as part of a sponsored foresight symposium on these theme of digital literacies, which featured challenging talks by Dr Doug Belshaw and Professor Deirdre Butler.
