SALT - Southern Area Learning Technologists
Tue 10 May 2016, 14:30 – 16:00 BST
It's been a long time since the last SALT (Southern Area Learning Technologists) meeting, but a few of us thought it would be good to resurrect it.
SALT will be running alongside ELESIG (Evaluation of Learners' Experiences of e-learning Special Interest Group). If you would like to learn more about ELESIG, please join our ning group: http://elesig.ning.com/group/elesig-south The people involved with ELESIG are spread right across the South (from Plymouth to Reading), whereas the main locus of this group is Bournemouth/Southampton/Portsmouth.
We aim to host regular (termly?) meetings within this (approx.) 30 mile radius, although HE and FE attendees from further afield are also welcome to attend. It will mainly be an opportunity for you to share challenges you are encountering in your role so that colleagues can share possible solutions (or commiserate!) as well as showcasing any innovations you've introduced. There are no intentions to hold formal events or write academic papers.
The next meeting will take place on Tuesday 10th May from 14:30 - 16:00 in Building 67 (Nightingale); Room 1015. This building is on University of Southampton's Highfield Campus. Further information and maps can be found here: http://www.southampton.ac.uk/about/visit/getting-to-our-campuses.page On-street parking is available nearby - there is a 2 hour limit.
If you have any topics that you would like to add to the agenda, please do let me know. Adam Warren has suggested that our meeting could be about Student Response Systems. Here at University of Southampton, we are currently reviewing in-class polling systems. Adam has summarised his findings thus far in a blog post: https://telic.wordpress.com/srs/online-student-response-systems-compared/ It may also be possible to invite Dave Liptrot from TopHat: https://tophat.com/ to talk about the benefits of the product. As Dave is only visiting the UK for 3 days, we probably won't have this opportunity again.
Another topic that is of interest to many in this group is the growth of lecture capture and the policies and practices that are being developed around it.
Please encourage colleagues from your institution and others in this area to sign up to the mailing list and to attend our meeting. (To sign up to the mailing list visit www.jiscmail.ac.uk/SALT and follow the link 'Subscribe or Unsubscribe').
