The National Institute for Adult and Continuing Education (NIACE) are holding their third E-Guides National Event 2008 on 13 March in Manchester. This year's programme is jam-packed with speakers who will bring you up-to-date on key themes and issues in e-learning, and workshops that offer hands-on opportunities to improve your skills in this area.
I'm spoilt for choice as the workshop programme has a choice of over 30 titles this year, including:
Quality and inspection: what role ICT and e-learning?
E-portfolios – explored
Developing active learning strategies in e-learning
Make your photos tell a story for assessment
Mobile learning in action: Lessons from the MoLeNET project
Working with Windows Moviemaker
Mobile learning: The impact of mobility on learning, learners, society
Using electronic voting systems
Online learning skills
ICT Skills for Life
I’ll almost certainly attend as will Work Based Learning Advisers from our other RSC regions. As was noted in previous years, it’s a fantastic opportunity to get tips, ideas and to see real life examples of what e-learning has to offer.
You can watch a short video clip to see what last year’s attendees said about the 2007 event here.
Full details of this year’s programme and booking information etc can be found on http://www.niace.org.uk/eguidesnatevent.
It's worth noting there is also an additional discounted fee for E-Guides, or those who are booked to attend the three-day training programme in the future. So if you've not already booked your place on e-guides, now might be the time to do that, particularly as there are currently capital grants available for early birds that do.
Hope to see you in Manchester!
