Active learning with Mobile and Web 2.0 technologies - This was the best session that I have been to - very excited about some of the things I have taken away from the session and it takes a lot to excite me - I am an accountant after all!

Sandra Huskinson - Sandra - do you want to share a taxi to the gala dinner? let me know!

Sandra Huskinson - Thanks Sandra - will see you outside the lift if you are sure thats OK? Much less scary to go with someone friendly who I sort of know rather than on my own! thanks

E-teacher training - I thought that the two sessions were very interesting as much of the limited work I have seen on this kind of thing has been restricted to students' use of wikis for collaborative learning rather than peer support/peer mentoring - I am going to go back and see whether we might adopt something similar as a pilot as we are reviewing induction processes within the Faculty. Thanks!

Kirsten Thompson - Hi Kirsten I was in the CMALT session this morning which was informative and something that I definitely want to take part in.. I was wondering whether you might be interested in meeting for a coffee to discuss something around VLE design for my PhD - my email is (I asked the question about evidence!) Thanks Iwi!

Hi Iwi,

Glad you found the CMALT session useful :o) And yes, it would be great to meet up to chat about VLE design - I'd be really interested to hear about what you are doing too. If we don't get chance to meet up during the conference, I'm sure we can meet up in Leeds - my e-mail:
