We are delighted to open the call for proposals for the Moodlemoot Edinburgh 2014 being held at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange on April 14-16, 2014.
Getting the opportunity to share your experiences from using Moodle, and learning from others are some of the main reasons for attending a Moodlemoot. This year the main theme of the Moodlemoot is the student experience. We will have three strands:
- Active Learning
- Assessment and Evaluation
- Wider Support and Admin
We are now inviting proposals for presentations and posters! For more details on the different presentation formats click here
The call for proposals closes on October 31st, 2013.
The schedule for the two central days (April 15th and 16th) of the Moodlemoot will be designed to cater for a number of proposal types these include:
- Pecha Kucha ( 6 mins 40 seconds)
- Short Presentations (15 minutes)
- Long Presentations (25 Minutes)
In addition to the sessions, this year we are continuing with some participant based panel type discussions, but more on that later.
There will be a number of training and workshops sessions for the 1st day of the Moot (April 14th) – these are being organised centrally and we will announce the list in coming month or so before full registration begins.
On the 17th we will have a developer focused hackfest – more details to come on this too.
If you have any ideas you may wish to contribute or would like to volunteer to help at the pre-conference training workshops, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
