Looking ahead to #ALTC 2015
This time next week I’ll be at The University of Manchester for #ALTC 2015 – undoubtedly the biggest learning technologies conference of the year!
I’ve spent the last few days digesting the extensive #ALTC Programme, reading abstracts, and deciding my strategy for getting the most out of what is guaranteed to be an action-packed 3 days (and nights)!
Without initially realising it, I seem to have selected the majority of my sessions from the ‘Participatory approaches to the development of learning technologies‘ theme (yellow), which I think says a lot about how we like to do things here in the TEL team.
Much like my Fantasy Football team, my schedule is likely to change several times before kick-off, as I chop & change my mind and wish that I could clone myself several times in order to attend more sessions (now there’s a scary thought)!
If you are unable to attend the conference then you can still participate online by remote viewing some of the streamed sessions, or by engaging with the conference hashtag #ALTC on Twitter, visit the #ALTC Online Participation webpage for more details. You can even earn the ‘Participant‘ badge from the Open Badges area on the website if you are joining in remotely!
I’ll do my best to capture all of the interesting stuff over the three days and blog about them on here when I get back, but if there is anything in particular you are interested in finding out about while I’m there then please just let me know in the comments below!
P.S. Did you know YSJ Staff are eligible for free Associate Membership of Association for Learning Technology (ALT)!?
