EMLT Meeting – Late Summer 2016

Our Late Summer meeting of the East Midlands Learning Technologists’ group is taking place on Wednesday 24th August at the University of Nottingham (Jubilee Campus).

There is no fixed theme for this meeting.

During this event we would like to explore whatever themes those attending are interested in exploring – sharing our experiences in the field of learning technologies. See the Discussion forum section below.

Call for presentations

We would like to feature three (3) presentations that focus on the sharing of practice. We are limiting it to three (3) as we have a busy schedule for the meeting. Pecha Kucha style presentations are always welcome – but in general, presentations should be no longer than 10 mins.

Closing date for presentation proposals is 5pm on Friday 29th July – the three (3) submissions will be selected on a first come first served basis. If there are more than 3 submissions the extras will be rolled over to the next meeting.

Please complete the form below if you’re happy to present.

Discussion forum provocations

The meeting will also include an open discussion forum which will be fuelled by your provocations (discussion starters) – questions, issues, ideas, concerns, musings, quandaries, experiences that you would like to have discussed, debated and explored by the group in an open forum format.

To submit a provocation for discussion please complete the form at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1KXm-31GDU7M2xprAm8yEPb9n0qM772RviFlVwaFQq8c by 5pm on Friday August 19th.

Provocations will be discussed on a first come first served basis – it is anticipated that we will have time to discuss 3 or 4. However, we may get through more or less – so if you have submitted a provocation be prepared to introduce it on the day.

Any provocations that are not dealt with at this meeting will be carried over to the next meeting, and/or might also be considered as larger themes for subsequent meetings.
