The 5th anzMLearn Mobile Learning Research Workshop will be held on Thursday 5 December this year.

This is to facilitate the attendance of members who will also be participating in the ASCILITE conference in Sydney that week.The theme of the free 1-day workshop, facilitated by Drs Helen Farley and Angela Murphy from the University of Southern Queensland, will be ‘Making mLearning Last? Harnessing Trends and Challenging Orthodoxies’. It is hoped that from the workshop ideas for an edited book will emerge, with participants having the opportunity to submit chapter proposals or to join the editing team:
 
A new generation of students, with near-ubiquitous access to sophisticated mobile devices, are no longer content to sit passively in a classroom and absorb knowledge. These students demand the same levels of access, immediacy, mobility and personalisation in their learning as is available to them in their work and  personal lives. The response by educational institutions to date has been ad-hoc and insufficient to deliver effective and sustainable mobile learning programs. But why? This workshop will do more than examine the challenges in implementing wide-scale mobile learning initiatives: it will speculate about solutions, speak to the unspoken dreams of educators, and imagine the student of the future.
