The second conference day is supported by sponsors City & Guilds and has a focus on Further Education and Cross-Sector Engagement. The day’s programme features sessions and activities related to ALT’s work in FE and across sectors including a keynote speech from Catherine Cronin (Lecturer & Academic Coordinator of online IT programmes, National University of Ireland, Galway) with the title ‘Navigating the Marvellous: Openness in Education’ in which Catherine will explore the challenges of being open in Education and will pose the question whether openness is a “survival trait” for the future.

Later that day, participants have the opportunity to join in an open policy debate chaired by the Chair of ALT, Professor Diana Laurillard. Together with research and practice, policy is a key element of the intelligent use of Learning Technology and this debate will explore the recent developments across sectors including the Government’s response to the recommendations from the the Further Education Learning Technology Action Group (FELTAG) and also the work of the Education Technology Action Group (ETAG).

And not to forget…. tomorrow, Tuesday, night we’ll be announcing who’s won the Learning Technologist of the Year Award 2014!
