STEM Futures – Technology Enhanced Learning in Practice 

16-17 April 2015, The Open University, Milton Keynes


The Open University is at the forefront of applying technology to facilitate STEM education which underpins most of what we do from delivery through to assessment. Technological opportunities are constantly evolving: smarter devices; faster, more ubiquitous WiFi; new software tools. So we also need to continue reviewing the strategy. Our 4th conference will allow us to put the spotlight on current and future applications of technologies for facilitating learning.

The eSTEeM conference will run over two days; day one will showcase the work from the STEM faculties ranging across themes including innovative assessment, online/onscreen STEM practice and technologies for STEM learning. On day two our focus will shift to looking at the creative development of technologies and innovations such as remote and robotic experimentation with input from European and international colleagues. 

We are delighted to announce the following presenters:

Opening Keynote Presentations -

Paul Jones, Research Fellow, Cranfield University
