ALT-C 2009 Preview

September 7, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Later today I’m heading to Manchester for ALT-C 2009, the UK’s largest educational technology conference. By attending, I’m breaking my don’t-go-to-the-same-conference-twice-in-a-row ‘rule’ but I really enjoyed last year and looking at the list of delegates  and pre-conference chatter: twitter, crowdvine I’m sure I’ll get a lot out of it once gain. Plus the fact that it’s in Manchester where I did my undergraduate degree and became addicted.  If you’re new to ALT-C have a read of last year’s conference review, penned by myself and colleagues, to get an idea of what it’s all about.

Apart from catching up with old friends and meeting online friends face-to-face for the first time, I think there are three topics in particular that are on my mind for up-coming projects.  I’ll be looking for sessions and people where I can learn more about: audio feedback, the use of eportfolios for supporting group work and in a similar vein, the use of wikis for collaborative writing.  In all three cases it’s not the technical tools that I’m interested in hearing about but the successes and the pitfalls that others have experienced.

Conference review to follow on our team blog

    I’m a big fan of that rule, more people should follow it (but I guess it’s more of a guideline than a rule, huh? 😉
