Feedback from a delegate at the 2012 JISC Innovating e-Learning online conference

Innovating e-Learning 2012: Shaping the future is the seventh in the popular series of JISC e-Learning Programme online conferences brought together delegates from further and higher education to explore and develop the use of technology to enhance learning and teaching.

The title of the 2012 conference, 'Shaping the future', reflects the changing educational environment and addresses the challenges that institutions and practitioners are facing. The pre-conference activity week, provided a platform for JISC-funded projects, delegates and agencies to run their own short presentations and showcase events. The main conference included keynote addresses by Dr Sue Black, James Clay and Ian Gilbert. All the sessions in the main conference were live – the recordings are now available. Sessions were supported by cross-cutting asynchronous discussion forums open to all delegates.

The conference was supported by the JISC Regional Support Centres and JISC Netskills who are provided the conference platform.
