Phil Long is on a five-year mission to find out more about how technology can enhance active learning. In this conversation with host Jon Udell, he reviews lessons learned from MIT's TEAL (technology-enabled active learning) initiative, and discusses the related work he and his team are doing at the Center for Educational Innovation and Technology at the University of Queensland in Australia.
Phillip Long is dedicated to CEIT’s research on environments that have the potential to innovate teaching, learning and creativity. This includes research, development, and dissemination of educational innovation through the strategic use of physical and virtual spaces and technology.
Professor Long’s current research interests focus on designing built pedagogies, both physical and virtual, to support active learning and research collaboration. His other professional activities include:
* New Media Consortium Board (2006 to 2009)
* Current chair of the NMC Board, NMC Project Horizon (2005 to present)
* 2006 Syllabus Conference Campus Host
* SAC Program Committee (2005 to 2007, 2006 Chair)
* Adobe Higher Education Advisory Board (2007)
* Steven’s Institute of Technology WebCampus board
* Senior Associate with the non-profit TLT Group
Professor Long and CEIT will foster a community of scholarship with technological innovators and researchers around the world. The Centre will include students as partners in the innovation cycle, supporting their participation in technology development at UQ and other institutions.
