Hi All. Just thought I'd add my thoughts on the upcoming #vitae09 conference as NW Hub Manager. It's a fantastic way for me to catch up with all my regional and national contacts over the sessions - professional and social! I was a Vitae conference 'virgin' last year so I'm looking forward to making the most of the conference this time around. Hey, I might even understand the content of all the sessions! I'm helping out in a few workshops so if you haven't decided what to go to yet, you are welcome to join me at:
- So you're new to developing postgraduate researchers?
- Pathways - from small beginnings
- Integrating technology into researcher training
The last workshop is my particular favourite as I'm really excited about the use of technologies (especially web 2.0) to enhance face-to-face, online and blended training. I think the potential is huge and using these technologies will help us to measure the impact of our training more easily. I've recently set up a NW Hub blog and I'm on Twitter too @vitaenwhub.
Well that's my thoughts, hope to see you at the conference peeps.
