We enjoyed presentations from the Opps for Apps and Apps for Innovation teams, Learning Designer, Rob Farmer and Director of the Collaborative Centre for the Built Environment, Sabine Coady Schaebitz. A definite highlight in understanding the design process behind creating apps was the talk by Touchpress representatives, Louise Rice and Selam Zeru. Use the media player below to listen to an audio recording of their talk:
It was also really useful to draw together educators, students and business representatives in discussions about the use of apps in higher education pedagogy (Click here for the padlet of this discussion).
The symposium attracted 28 participants from across the University of Northampton including the School of the Arts, the School of Social Sciences, the School of Education and the Research and Strategic Bidding Office. Please scroll below for some photographs from the symposium.
