New DER Seminar on 22nd August 2019: Digital Sociologies


UPDATE 6/8/2019 Unfortunately Deana Leahy won’t be with us on August the 22nd. However, our own amazing Neil Selwyn stepped in to fill the gap! We apologise to those who were hoping to catch up with Deana’s outstanding work on digital tech and health education. Neil’s contribution (Tracing the mundane in/securities of the datafied school –see updated poster below) promises to be just as interesting!


In this seminar titled DIGITAL SOCIOLOGIES Luci Pangrazio, Deana Leahy and Carlo Perrotta will offer three innovative different perspectives on sociological approaches in digital education research:

Teachers as Policy Entrepreneurs: PE’s Brave New Digital World.

Data Smart? The challenges of ‘doing’ critical data literacy in schools.

Machine learning algorithms in higher education: cultures, politics and surveillance.

Thursday 22nd August 2019 | 2pm to 3pm | room 3.51 | third floor of the Learning and Teaching building | Clayton Campus

All welcome (no booking needed)!
