EdTech 2009 - Call for Papers Open

The Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA) has announced that their 10th annual educational technology users' conference - EdTech 2009 - will take place at the National College of Ireland (Dublin) on May 21-22.

This year's conference theme is appropriately titled '2020 Vision: Changing Learning Futures Through Technology' to reflect this milestone.

The EdTech conference brings together a range of educational technology researchers and practitioners, and is always an enjoyable and informative occasion. This year's keynote speakers are:
  • Richard Katz, Vice-President of EDUCAUSE
  • Fiona O'Carroll, Senior Vice-President of HMH (formerly Riverdeep)
  • Neil Sclater, Director of Learning Innovation at the Open University
The EdTech 20009 call for papers is now open for practitioner, research and postgraduate strands via the conference submission portal.

Such a pity the Irish Internet Association is having their congress at the same time. Do you know if there will be any live video streams etc from EdTech?

Hi Keith
Yes there will be live streaming and archives of the keynotes, as well as the plenary session courtesy of HEAnet.
