Virtual Physiological Human Conference 2014 - 9-12 September 2014, Trondheim, Norway

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is very pleased to host the 3rd VPH conference by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute. This biannual conference series grew out of the FP7 Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence. It has become one of the major instruments for maintaining the coherence and momentum of the highly multidisciplinary VPH community.

The members of the VPH community subscribe to the view that substantially improved healthcare can only be achieved through converged efforts of the life sciences, the mathematical sciences and engineering. On 14 January 2014 in Strasbourg, Members of the European Parliament specifically endorsed the work of the VPH Institute by recognising the role of the VPH initiative towards improving healthcare in their eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020. VPH2014 participants may thus enjoy the rare claim that they contribute to an initiative that has earned the support of the elected representatives of EU citizens and is directly supported in EU policy.

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.
