Expanding Learning Horizons (day 1)

16082009095

The end of day 1 of the Expanding Horizons Conference and a good day of conversations despite the wild weather.  This year the organisers have worked hard to increase the bandwith into the conference and it’s the first conference I’ve attended with a range of network connections beyond the conference website including a NING, a wikispace and a Twitter hastag! (#elh09)

All good fun, but the conversations are what matters, and there was plenty of good sessions, including Andrew Douch’s keynote on redefining classroom and some great strategic conversations around social boundaries of learning and assessment including the murky legal waters around student-teaher online interactions (see my OneNote doodling on ‘murky legal waters’ below)

And, did I mention how beautiful Lorne is, nestled in the the corner of the bay beneath the hills? When you come here with the crowds in summer, you can forget that.  I took the picture at the top this morning on a walk between sessions.
