Innovating e-Learning 2011, the sixth in the popular series of Jisc online conferences, brings together delegates from further and higher education with an interest in technology-enhanced learning and teaching.
This year’s programme offers more than ever before with two distinct elements demonstrating the advantages of online conferencing. Firstly, the pre-conference activity week, starting on the 15th November, provides a platform for delegates and agencies, such as the Jisc Regional Support Centres, to run their own short presentations and showcase events. The main conference then starts on the 22nd November with sessions programmed under two themes, each with its own keynote presentation and plenary. The final keynote is delivered this year by Ewan MacIntosh. All sessions in the main conference are live but recorded for delegates who cannot attend at the time. Sessions are also supported by asynchronous discussion forums open to all delegates.

During the week beginning 15th November, a variety of events and activities will provide a lively pre-conference experience. You will need to register early to fully participate in these events.
