2007 European LAMS Conference. ‘Following the success of the First International LAMS conference in 2006, the focus of the conference is on designing for the future. Where will Learning Design take us now? How is LAMS shaping up? What are the challenges for individuals and organizations? Importantly we want to capture the experience of those who have used LAMS and share some of the lessons learned in higher education, the K-12 sector, vocational and professional education.’
The 2007 European LAMS conference will be held on July 5th at University of Greenwich University, London, UK.
LAMS Foundation. ‘LAMS is a revolutionary new tool for designing, managing and delivering online collaborative learning activities. It provides teachers with a highly intuitive visual authoring environment for creating sequences of learning activities. These activities can include a range of individual tasks, small group work and whole class activities based on both content and collaboration.’
The LAMS Conference follows the Designing for Learning Conference (4 July 2007), which is being held at the same venue earlier in the week. ‘Effective design in a technology-rich environment is characterized by activity-based learning, with learners having increasingly more choice over the technologies they use. Promises of enhanced flexibility and improved learning are now being realized through 21st Century â€˜new buildâ€™ and the adaptation of existing physical environments. This conference considers how learning and teaching practices need to change if these opportunities are to be realized.’
