Some other ideas to help you get the most out of the three days #altc:
Come along on the first morning to the ALT stand, in the Exhibition Hall, and say hello to our members who are there to welcome you;
There is a welcome event in the evening on the first day as well, so if you would like to meet other new participants and members or find out more about ALT, the Association for Learning Technology, who organises this conference, we look forward to meeting you;
Throughout the 3 days, there are a number of community-led sessions which are marked as such in the programme. Come along to those that interest you and to find out about more opportunities to get involved;
Use the online conference platform to get in touch with other participants and follow sessions you are interested in so that others can connect with you;
If you have questions or seeking help, come to the Conference Helpdesk, at the entrance to the Exhibition Hall and we will do our best to help.
We hope this will be your first of many more years participating in our Annual Conference and we hope that you will find it a valuable and stimulating experience. If you have any other tips please feel free to share in the comments or using the #altc tag.
