Seminar 5: Who Can Inhabit the New Academic Identities of a Digital Age?

Date: Tuesday 12th January 2010  10am - 4pm
Venue: Leeds Metropolitan University, Rose Bowl Conference Room
This final session interrogates the claimed new generational power geometries of higher education in view of what has been seen as an almost universal shift in students' orientation to knowledge and technological literacy. We ask if this is the case or for which students and which type of institution is this a reality?
