Not long until our next meeting!!

Our autumn meeting of the East Midlands Learning Technologists’ group for 2014 is due to take place on the 22nd of October at Loughborough College and the theme is ‘Mind the Gap! Mainstreaming and supporting innovation‘ – and we’d like to hear your stories of how you discovered innovation, how you shared it, how you helped to change practice… or how you took a small innovative idea and made it big. As ever… we need you!!

Call for presentations

We’d love to have some PechaKucha presentations from our community – 6 minute presentations with images – where you tell us about how you got over that awkward gap between a great idea and the reality of getting it into the mainstream. Small scale, large scale, online, offline, formal or informal learning… give us a taste of your experience and some food for thought. We’re interested in presentations from across the learning spectrum – whether that’s Higher Education, Further Education, Schools, local government or the private sector, we’d like to hear from you.

Closing date for submitting presentation ideas is 5pm on Friday 26th September 2014 and we’ll confirm presenters during the first week of October. So, to submit your ideas, head to the submission form (http://goo.gl/ccVuye) and fill out the details.
