Brighton Unconference

eLN Industry partners CommsLearning and ThinkBiscuit Media are hosting an ‘un-conference’ for eLearning network members. Four industry experts will be hosting round-table chats discussing their own areas of expertise. We are delighted to be running this in-person event at the funky platf9rm building in the centre of Brighton, providing a great opportunity for networking, learning, and perhaps even a bit of fun!

How it will work

Attendees will be divided into groups to rotate through sessions throughout the afternoon. Each of our experts will be leading their own thought-provoking group discussions and we’ll wrap the day up with some drinks and further networking opportunities.

Table 1: Managing Digital Learning projects
Paul will be discussing his experience of how to manage eLearning projects and stakeholders successfully.

Table 2: eLearning tools and tips
Michael Ditchburn will be giving his advice on building eLearning and the tools that you use to do this.

Table 3: The future of training
Hannah Gore will be discussing the future of training, how the workshops of tomorrow could take place, during and post-pandemic.
