 Pre-Conference – Monday 5 September

Monday 5 September at 17:00 Pip McDonald is hosting an #altc online open mic night. Tune in for what promises to be a varied and energetic show.

The #altc open mic is an online event where performers have a 5 minute slot each to perform original work. Original work can include poetry, spoken word, monologue, songwriting, story, animation, haiku, dance, comic or multimodal performance. The broad theme of the open mic event is ‘learning technology’. Stuck for an idea? Think about telling your story of how you became a Learning Technologist? How about a speculative piece exploring the learning technologist of the future? Dare to be creative! Pip McDonald is a Senior Learning Technology Project Officer and experimental performance poet (@PipMac6). Check out her techno-auto-ethnographic poem. Ask Pip a question about the event:
