Local Academic Hubs for #MootIEUK23
Being a local academic hub for #MootIEUK23 is a great way to get involved with this year’s UK and Ireland MoodleMoot.
Institutions who have the suitable rooms available to host local academic hubs, will be able to apply to be a hub. This requires a commitment that they will be able to not only host their own staff, but also a number of others who sign up for their hub.
Hubs dont need to cater the event itself, simply provide access to a canteen/cafes/etc nearby that those attending can go buy stuff!
If for example, a university had two training rooms (there will be 2 streams) that could accommodate 30 people in each, and they were to make 15 in each available to non-staff, then they would be eligible to apply for hub status and when they buy 5 tickets, they get 10 tickets free for their own staff.
- You will be one of a limited number of these hubs.
- It will be limited to minimise loss of value and impact to the experience of the guests.
- You will get the opportunity to network and engage with attendees who will be a mix of peers and experts.
- For every 15 spaces you provide you get 10 free tickets once you pay for 5.
- We will promote your space as a hub to registered attendees, you can do alongside or simply make use of the work we provide.
- We will provide marketing in the run up to the event publicising all hubs.
Note: No commercial organisations may sponsor/support/attend the academic hubs.
What does a Hub need?
- 2 rooms of 20-30 person capacity each at least and willing to have half of the spaces for non staff.
- Facilities to enable sharing the live streaming video and audio to these rooms.
- Tea and coffee facilities and lunch facility for attendees to buy (canteen, or cafe?),
- Potential post event networking venues nearby – you don’t have to organise this, it should happen organically.
