Leader/s: Chaired by Brett Lucas (English Subject Centre)
Time: 15:30 - 17:00
This panel will provide a lively interactive debate between the speakers and the audience around the subject of whether the new technologies employed in the teaching of English studies in the 21st century are in fact changing the nature of the discipline itself. The panel will be made up of 5 or 6 speakers, each of whom will advocate ways in which English is or isn’t changing with technological interventions. Each speaker will take the floor for a 5 minute plenary introducing the main thrust of their argument the rest of the session will involve interaction with the audience. Speakers would be allowed a right of reply to any points raised against their arguments and the audience will be able to vote on the winning idea (whether for or against) at the end.
Participants would include the 6 practitioners currently working as e-learning advocates within their respective English departments around the country and who, therefore, have had to deal with many of the potential issues which may be raised during the debate.
