October 12th, 2012 5:30 PM
Seminar Room A
Business Design Centre
52 Upper Street
London, N1 0QH
Registration is free. Late registrations are welcome. We have enough room so it is ok to just turn up on the day.
Please be an active participant. Suggest a Table Session topic or propose a Lightning Talk. The success of this event depends on your willingness to contribute as well as learn. We are interested in people sharing their experiences in all possible areas.
Everybody is invited to submit topics for discussions for one of 10 Discussion Tables that will be available in the room. By agreeing to host a Table Session you are committing to facilitating the discussion. Session hosts should introduce the topic by presenting for no more than 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The topic could be quite open ended like "How can we convince schools to allow mobile phone use in the classroom" with the host presenting their experiences or outlining issues. Or the topic can be very specific "How to use Structured Word Documents" where the host would briefly present what she does with her Word documents followed by a discussion of how this can be beneficial for inclusion. The submitter will also take live notes or delegate one person attending to take live notes. Each topic will be scheduled to run twice during the conference.
There will also be space for a limited number of brief presentations in the format of Lightning Talks. Lightning talks should last no more than 6 minutes. Often this is styled as 20 slides set to change automatically every 20 seconds. But this is not required. Lightning talks can be presented on any related topics and can be the sharing of information or venting of a frustration.
