As technology takes an ever larger role in learning, as Massive Open Online Courses boom, and as Google fast-tracks yet more educational services, our panel of academics and students will lock horns with the technology community for a frank discussion: Is today’s ed tech fit for purpose?

Join speakers from universities, the technology sector, and student leadership for an evening of dialogue and argument. Maren Deepwell- Chief Executuve of the Association for Learning Technology will be in the chair.

Hot drinks will be available from 17:00, and wine, soft drinks and nibbles at the end in the Roberts Foyer.

We'll be using #ucledtech to gather questions and carry on the conversation
