Digital Learning and Training: Technologies and Methods

18/11/2021 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm


The Applied Cognition, Technology & Interaction Group (ACTInG) at Loughborough University with our key project partner Mencap and other national 3rd sector organizations are bringing together researchers from across the Midlands for a series of three themed research sandpits between November 2021 and April 2022 focused on the inclusion, well-being, and autonomy of people living with cognitive impairments and learning disabilities. These events will build on the success of our initial ACTInG research networking day in July 2021.

The event will by hybrid (on zoom and in-person at Loughborough University).

The November event will include two keynote talks, four shorter talks, and a research sandpit. The theme for November is: ‘Digital learning and training: technologies and methods”. The goal of the sandpit is to produce new interdisciplinary collaborations and project proposals that will lead to the production of one or more large project bids within the framework—and with the support of—the Midlands Innovation Inclusive Transformation programme (https://midlandsinnovation.org.uk/Inclusive-Transformation).

We welcome students, researchers, clinicians, carers and people affected by cognitive impairments and/or learning disabilities.

Please also get in touch with any member of the Programme Committee if you have any questions:
