The aim of this conference is to explore multimodal perspectives on learning. It
will address issues around mode, media and technology; curriculum, pedagogy and
assessment; diversity of learning environments.

This conference will build on and develop a growing body of multidisciplinary
research, including studies in conversation analysis, linguistic anthropology,
ethnography and social semiotics.

Through parallel paper presentations, plenary panel discussions and keynotes,
questions and debate will be opened up around the following topics.

Modes, media and technology: What does it mean to learn using the potentials and
constraints of different modes, media and technologies?

Curriculum, pedagogy and assessment: What does multimodality mean for
curriculum, pedagogies and forms of assessment?

Diversity of learning environments: What does it mean to make multimodality in
different social, cultural, modal, medial, formal, informal, global, and local
environments for learning?
