Update on the 1st Moodle Research Conference – Early Bird Extended

For those who have not booked already, I saw that the Early Bird prices have been extended to the 15th of July so you have a few more days to save 100 euro on the price of the ticket (which covers the conference registration and accommodation).

Two of the sessions have been detailed already:

Martin Dougiamas will be doing a keynote speech: “Back to the classroom…”

There will be a discussion panel “The future of the use of LMSs for supporting technology enhanced learning models”

Speakers:
Gavin Henrick, Learning Technology Services, Ireland
Clive Holtham, Cass Business School, City University London, UK
Stuart Mealor, HRDNZ, New Zealand
Petros Georgiakakis, ITisART, Greece
Martin Dougiamas, Moodle.com, Australia

Programme update:

Martin Dougiamas posted on Moodle.org about the programme:

The first Moodle Research Conference (in Crete, Greece on 14-15 September, 2012) is shaping up very nicely!

We had 46 papers submitted for review, and the programme committee were able to accept 25 of them.  This is a healthy percentage for a first research conference!   (Lower is better with these things)

Thanks to all the people who submitted and reviewed papers – I’m impressed with the high standard and I’m really looking forward to this conference programme and the ideas and discussions it will spark.

This is one conference I am really looking forward to.

Roll on September.
