Festival format

In exploring the conference theme of futures for knowledge, keynote speakers and discipline practioners will be invited to share and examine the priorities for their subjects with colleagues from a learning and teaching background.

What will individual disciplines look like in 2025? What are the priorities that need to be taught to students in the years to come? What can we learn from current use of technology in teaching, and what lies over the horizon?

Over 48 hours and from three continents, keynote speakers from 12 disciplines will highlight what for them are the priorities in their subject areas before we move onto further elaboration in moderated discussions and technological showcases.


By bringing together both fields - the discipline itself plus knowledge and experience from teaching and learning - we hope Follow the Sun 2012 will offer an ideal opportunity for all of us to look to the future as we learn from each other.
