Jointly hosted by the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the Conference attracted a range of delegates from countries including the UK, US, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, France, Finland, Lebanon, and South Korea. The full Conference Agenda may be viewed here.

Dr Wiley’s paper was originally delivered last year at Aarhus University, Denmark (see here) and was revised for presentation in Karlsruhe, as part of the second Turning Technologies Conference to be held in Continental Europe.

An advocate of electronic voting systems for the past five years, in 2012 Dr Wiley became the first person from the arts and humanities to join Turning Technologies’ Distinguished Educator programme (see here).

Update: as a result of this conference appearance, Dr Wiley was featured on ‘Turn to Your Neighbour: The Official Peer Instruction Blog’, which is among the top 100 most read educational blogs globally.

Dr Christopher Wiley addressed the Turning Technologies User Conference 2012 at Aarhus University, Denmark on 19 June 2012, delivering a presentation entitled ‘Using Electronic Voting Systems in the Arts and Humanities’.

In the first Turning Technologies Conference to be held in Continental Europe, Dr Wiley argued for the largely unrecognized potential for electronic voting systems to enhance teaching in disciplines other than the sciences and business, drawing on his use of the technology as a music lecturer as well as his original research.

Dr Wiley was one of six speakers to lead parallel breakout sessions during the conference, selected from over 50 proposals received. Participating delegates were drawn from countries including the US, Denmark, the UK, France, Germany, Holland, and Spain.
