More than 80 educators are expected on the Thurles campus of the Limerick Institute of Technology for a day-long “Learning Spaces” conference on the 19th of May. The event marks the eighth year of education conference run bv the department of Technology, Science and Media in LIT.
The conference takes a broad view of both the physical and virtual spaces where we learn. Keynote speakers and workshop presenters explore space, time, technology, and the curriculum in front of first and second level students.
Two avid American educators headline this year’s conference as keynote speakers. Both Ira Socal and Pam Moran promote “The Iridescent Classroom”. They imagine a space without boundaries of opportunity but with enclosures for safety and security. They appreciate traditional time and space limitations while promoting support and mentoring for creativity. Both keynote speakers bring their message of “sharing to build a vibrant teaching community” to the Learning Spaces Conference.
