LASER is pleased to announce the Access to HE Annual Conference is confirmed for Monday 16 July 2018 at The British Library, London. The event will be a practitioner-focussed day looking at e-learning and new developments.
This year we focus on all things ‘online’, and our programme opens with Lisa Flahant, an experienced education marketing manager whose expertise has been recognised over the years with four
HE First Marketing Awards and a prestigious HEIST Marketing Award. Lisa now runs her own consultancy, Marketing Girl Friday and will be hosting a session on Making the most out of social media
“We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media, the question is how well we do it..”
There is no denying that social media has transformed the way in which we all communicate. Social media provides colleges and universities with the opportunity to revolutionise the way in which their provision is portrayed – nationally, locally and within their own environment.
This session will demonstrate effective strategies, tips and tricks to successfully manage Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and other social media to make them work for you and those you work alongside. Simple, straightforward and highly effective techniques that work, which should enable you to return to work inspired, with a range of ideas and best practice.
Our second keynote will be led by Esther Barrett, who will be delivering a session on Developing independent learning through technology. Esther is based in the subject specialist team at Jisc and helps learning providers make the most of all Jisc has to offer around teaching, learning and assessment, working in areas such as digital literacy, learning and teaching, building and supporting communities of practice and developing digital learning experiences. This promises to be an interesting and engaging session—so please bring a device (smartphone, tablet, etc) so you can get involved!
With an overview of LASER’s e-learning offer giving an update on all that is LASER online and a look at what is in the pipeline to support centres, the inspiring student prize presentation and plenty of time to network, we have a packed programme. The day concludes with a panel discussion Thinking about the future which includes Julie Mizon, the new QAA Access Manager as part of our panel.
