Innovating e-Learning 2010 Online Conference

The 5th JISC international online conference

Bringing Innovation to Life: from adversity comes opportunity

23rd – 26th November 2010

  • How are colleges and universities going to change in light of recent policy announcements?
  • How do we sustain the investment in technology-enhanced learning in the current climate?
  • Do we know what students really want in relation to technology?
  • How can we transform current assessment for learning practice?
  • Is the future mobile?

Innovating e-Learning 2010 invites you to explore these highly topical issues with leading thinkers and experts.   With over 20 live sessions covering these themes followed by in-depth discussion, the format is highly participative; providing opportunities to interact with the keynote speakers and colleagues over and above what would be expected from a more traditional conference.  Live sessions are recorded ensuring you have access to the full programme content and can participate in as many sessions as you wish.  In addition, our official conference blogger James Clay, from Gloucestershire College will keep you informed, engaged and entertained throughout the conference  – see his early posts on a sense of community, value for money and the environmental benefits of Innovating e-Learning 2010.

The pre-conference activity and reading week opens on 16th November 2010 and offers a chance to become familiar with the conference environment, take part in interactive guided tours of virtual worlds and try out innovative JISC projects in the ‘have-a-go’ area.  Support continues after the conference with access to the materials, resources, discussions and recordings of the live sessions.
