The annual Elearning Update is a key conference in the field of Learning and Teaching with Technology. Now it its 10th year, it still brings together the real movers and shakers in the field. For 2017 the focus will be on the blend of Tools, Technologies and Techniques.
So, come and tell us, what are you blending with what? What are your recipes for the perfect blend.
What makes this conference unique is the wide range of applications that are covered. From university, to industry to school. 
The focus is on learning with technology. The focus is not on the technology, and neither on the specific application where the learning takes place. We want to know how and when technology adds value to the learning process. So, regardless of whether your application is pre-school or post-graduate (or anywhere in between) come and share in what we doing and what wew have learnt.  The idea of the conference is that we might learn from things that resonate with us. 
  • What might a corporate trainer or developer learn about gamification from a pre-school educator?
  • What might academics learn from practitioners and vice versa?
  • What might they all learn from one another?
The sort of things that will be discussed are:
  • What typical human problem did the technology solve for us?
  • How did technology help overcome a problem of space, distance or time?
  • What specific design features did we build into our solution, and how did that work for us, what did we learn from our huge success or our monumental failure?
  • What strategies are we using in developing our blended learning materials?
  • How are we getting our users to implement technology in their blended learning?
  • What is working for us, and why - and how can it work for you?
  • What new "theoretical" understanding are you gaining about the field?
Who should attend?
HRD Practitioners and Managers, Learning Materials Developers, Trainers, Teaching Developers, Academics, Graduate students, Teachers, Learning Co-ordinators, Principals of schools and colleges, Publishers, Facilitators, Instructional Designers, Learning designers, eLearning Developers, Curriculum Managers, Learning Technologists, Content Managers, LMS Administrators, Training Directors, Training Managers, Learning & Development Directors and Practitioners, Directors of Human Resources, Chief Learning Officers, Senior Training Officers, Learning & Development Managers and
Anyone looking for innovative or proven elearning solutions, tools, technologies, products, services, strategies, and best practices to use right now.

Gamification@Work - an "Un-conference"
This year we have decided to split the conference into a two-day boutique conference on Elearning, and then to make the third day a separately bookable single-day un-conference about Gamification.  An un-conference is a loosely structured event whereby various people present shorter points of view, and the audience is invited to participate fully.
This event will include presentations and caste studies about games and gamification to explain the difference between games and gamification and the advantages of this method for learning and also for business in general.
