Towards a mission
The SIG’s mission may be to make the world a better place by improving student learning by improving teaching by improving academic development by appropriate use of technologies. And having fun.
One strand of this is helping SEDA go appropriately digital.
Both learning technologists and developers may sometimes feel that they know or understand too little about each other’s work. Sometimes, developers may feel that too much learning technology is technology-led rather than learning-led. Sometimes, learning technologists may feel that developers do not sufficiently embrace, or indeed understand, the possibilities for improved learning and teaching that the new technologies make possible. Sometimes, probably, both are right.
So the SIG will build bridges.
What else should we be doing? People are making suggestions as they sign up for the SIG. The mission will evolve, emerge. Mainly through us doing good things together.
