Event details

Want to learn more from Southampton Solent University's outstanding academics?

Interested in hearing about new subjects?

The next public lecture will be given by Dr Timos Almpanis, associate professor and senior lecturer in learning and teaching.

The lecture, Learning theories, attitudes to technology and their impact on teaching, will discuss the learning theories developed by educators and psychologists over the last century.

It is helpful for all good educators to build knowledge of learning theories to help understand their own teaching practice and the philosophy behind it.

The lecture will also touch upon technology and how pre-established ideas and philosophical stances can influence their use during teaching practice.

Refreshments and buffet are available from 6.30pm, for a 7pm start. After the lecture there will be a chance to network over wine and cheese.
