VELG 2012

The eWorks conference stand

eWorks’ booth at VELG 2011

Joanne Norbury and I are looking forward to the upcoming National VET E-learning Conference (VELG), 21-22 September. The conference has attracted nearly 600 attendees last year which must have been a vocational conference record.

We will be hosting a booth to have conversations about the TrainingVC and our other products. We are also giving away an hour of free training on ‘Getting started in e-learning’ and ‘Adding Web 2.0 to your e-learning’.

I will be presenting ‘From Trainer Development to Client Engagement: Twitter for Educators and Case Studies from RTOs using Facebook.‘ on the Thursday afternoon. This session looks at what you need to get started and running with Twitter, understanding its contexts and grammar, how to leverage this to enhance your Personal Learning Network and what the social network’s role is in terms of training and education. The presentation will also address some of the issues with introducing Facebook into your organisation.

The hashtag for the conference is #2012nvc.

Take the time to come and say hi to us! We’ll be in booth no39.
