Keynote speakers, Workshop facilitators & topics

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Alison McKenzie
Title: Listening to marginalised voices in a conflict society: the value of participatory action research with children with disabilities.

Dr. Alison McKenzie is a lecturer and Masters programme director in special needs education at Queen’s University, Belfast

Dr. Mark Anderson FSEDA SFHEA

Title: Digital and diverse: embedding inclusive pedagogies for sustainable learning futures

Summary: The future of education is becoming increasingly difficult to predict, but there are at least two trends that look set to continue: digital technologies will further infuse our educational experience, practice and discourse; and the diversity of our learning communities will become ever richer and more complex. As we explore new ways to harness the potential of technology-enhanced learning, and to ensure that we create fully inclusive learning opportunities and environments, it becomes critical to revisit core principles. By keeping evidence-based, person-centred pedagogies at the heart of our learning culture, we can help prepare students to grow, adapt and thrive in learning futures that they create.

Dr. Mark Anderson is a Senior Educational Developer in the Centre for Higher Education Research and Scholarship (CHERS) at Imperial College London, Programme Director of Imperial’s Supporting Teaching and Recognition (STAR) Framework for HEA Fellowship, and the Founding Director of Akkadium Consulting.
