RIDE 2023 Sustaining Innovation: Research and Practice
The seventeenth annual Centre for Online and Distance Education conference on Research in Distance Education (RIDE) focuses in 2023 on Sustaining Innovation and Sustainable Practices.
Our virtual and in person conference, taking place across two days, focuses on research and scholarly practices in online, distance, blended, hybrid and hyflex higher education. We aim to provide opportunities to support our communities and our work.
Rapid and extensive innovation, development and expansion of the role of blended, online and distance learning has transformed higher education in the last few years. These changes have introduced opportunities for new ways of working for all involved, but have also placed pressures and stresses on students, staff, systems and technology. We will explore how people-focussed practices have and can be designed and developed through innovation that is sustainable for people, organisations and the planet.
- Conference dates: 28 and 29 March 2023
- Location: Online and University of London, Senate House, London UK
