On 10 May I joined in a videconference organised by Gwella ELESIG
. Gwella ELESIG is one of the newer forums in Wales at it aims to exist both as a virtual community of practice and as an occasional face to face meeting. Its membership of the wider ELESIG implies a focus on learner/student experience, and while it was a spin off from the Welsh HE Gwella programme it's seeking to widen its contacts further afield. The focus for the day's conversations was 'mobile and the learner experience'.
We comprised about 25 people over the whole day, from HE and FE, learning technologists, academics, a librarian and IT staff, in five videoconferencing studios. We alternated between short presentations delivered to the whole conference and informal discussions in individual studios, a nice balance of activities. To give you a flavour of the day here is a sample of tweets. You do really need to be there though, so I recommend you join in the Gwella ELESIG social network
(it's free to register).
