Research and Innovation in Distance Education and E-learning 2015


The Research and Innovation in Distance Education and eLearning (RIDE) conference took place at Senate House on Friday 6th February 2015. This annual event is organised by the Centre for Distance Education and explores new directions and developments in distance, online and technology enhanced learning. The conference was arranged around three key themes: design for learning, technology for learning and enhancing the student experience.

Our two keynote speakers for this year were:

  • Professor Mike Sharples – Professor of Educational Technology at the Institute for Educational Technology, The Open University UK; and academic lead for FutureLearn.
  • Professor Rose Luckin – Professor of Learner Centred Design at the Institute of Education, UCL; and at the London Knowledge Lab.

We also had an exciting set of speakers who presented during the day, drawing on their research and practice in their chosen fields. The event incorporated the latest outputs from the CDE’s programme of Teaching and Research Awards, and included paper and workshop sessions with plenty of opportunity to network with other experts.
