Moodlemoot Edinburgh 2014 – confirmed

As on the Moodlemoot.ie site:

It has been only a few months since Moodlemoot Dublin, but things have been progressing quickly.

We are delighted to announce that we will be running a Moodlemoot Edinburgh 2014 in partnership with Edinburgh Napier University. We aim to have a similar format to the two Dublin Moots, with training workshops, two days of presentations and then a developer hackfest.

We are currently working to finalise the dates and the venue and have narrowed down the decision after visiting a number of venues in the last few days.

However, we can confirm that the Moot will be held in Spring 2014 –  more information as soon as this is confirmed.

The following have generously agreed to be the Moodlemoot Edinburgh chairs:

Dr Keith Smyth
Senior Teaching Fellow and Senior Lecturer in Higher Education
Programme Leader MSc Blended and Online Education
Office of the Vice Principal (Academic)
Edinburgh Napier University

Dr Mark Glynn
Head of Learning Innovation Unit
Dublin City University

We will be announcing the programme committee in the coming weeks too – we already have a number of people accepted as members and are in discussions with others.

As with the last two moots, the programme committee will be doing three tasks:

  1. Setting the themes/formats for the Moot
  2. Assessing and rating the submissions
  3. Chairing sessions at the Moot

So if you want to put yourself forward for the programme committee on behalf of your institution – please get in contact with me in the next two weeks on info@moodlemoot.ie

See you in Edinburgh.
