On 24th January 2013 the EPS eLearning Team at the University of Manchester held a symposium on Distance and blended learning – dispelling the myths.

We would like to thank all the participants for attending the event, whether in person or online, and for contributing to its success with inspiring questions and comments.

A big thank you also to all our guest speakers who provided some interesting insights on the topic, and stimulated some excellent debate in the panel discussion.

The perspectives offered by our speakers and the subsequent discussion highlighted the importance of a flexible approach to learning and teaching, where technology plays an important role in enabling and facilitating blended education.
