This week's webinar
You can access this week's session via this link (please note the session will not be live until one hour before the start time).
This week's webinar is about sharing approaches to and strategies for what we do and how we do it. We will have two short presentations, introducing examples of approaches to and strategies for Learning Technology. We will then facilitate a discussion with presenters and participants on how to share our approaches, identifying common issues. Following the webinar we invite you to join one of the small group discussion forums on strategies for Learning Technology.
