The first student connections conference organised by the OU’s social science faculty is now less than two weeks away. On Monday we held our last activate session where we could all come together as presenters to discuss ideas for the conference, so everything is becoming a lot more real now as we enter the final stages. If this is the first you have heard about the online conference then it’s not too late to sign up for your FREE place here, over 700 are registered so far so its looking like a very lively event.
Most of the presentations for the conference are now complete, this includes the making distance learning more friendly project which will be shown on Monday 30th June 2014 at 16:30, but don’t forget, this is not the only presentation worth watching. Head over here to see a full program for the week, there is plenty to see, from Ben Tampins The Nature of my Teacup to Jonquil Lowe’s Why Capitalism Can’t Deliver.
The most important thing about this conference is that it is a clear opportunity to connect with both academics and students from the OU and there will be lots of opportunities for this to take place including live polls, forums and following the conference twitter feed.
Here is the link again, go register for your place, its free and you can attend from the comfort of your own living room.
Don’t forget to tell everyone why the OU is the place to be between 30th June 2014 – 4th July 2014.
