Innovation in waste management: Linking the ‘circular economy’ and the ‘waste hierarchy'
26 November 2014, Espoo, Finland
The workshop addresses the macro environmental effects of the diffusion of non-landfill waste management technologies for MSW by adopting an LCA approach. During the session, the participants will explore possible changing pressures from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies.
The presentations will explore observed ex post trends (1996-2011) and on ex ante scenarios (2012-2030 and beyond). The experts and guests are invited to discuss policy and economic implications of (saved) external costs from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies.

New ways of delivering HE - MOOCs and technology-enhanced learning
21 October 2014, London
This conference looks at the future for Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) - and the increased use of technology-enhanced learning more widely in Higher Education. It comes as government pushes for the UK to become a world leader in online learning and also follows a Higher Education Academy review of flexible pedagogies, with the technology-enhanced learning strand published in January.
Sessions will focus on the development of MOOCs, including their potential for online learning and Transnational Education, as well as concerns around implementation and accreditation of modules and the possible threat they pose to traditional teaching. Other key themes are likely to include outcomes and recommendations from FutureLearn's BETA pilot courses running currently. Delegates will also discuss ways in which Higher Education is currently taught and the increased influence technology is having on this, for example the greater use of blended and e-learning. We are delighted that Dr Alison Le Cornu, Academic Lead, Flexible Learning, Higher Education Academy and Stephen Haggard, Author, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Research Paper, The Maturing of the MOOC and Independent Consultant, Online Learning have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar, together with a senior speaker confirmed from HEFCE.
