EdTech2010 - Huge Contribution from NUI Galway

The EdTech2010 conference is being held on May 20-21 in Athlone Insitiute of Technology.

This event is the main annual technology-enhanced learning conference for the Irish user community and once again a wide diversity of NUI Galway initiatives will be showcased at the event.

NUIG has seven papers/presentations across practitioner, research, Pecha Kucha and Technology in Action strands - the largest representation from any Irish university or IoT. So congratulations to: Peter Cantillon; Mary Flemming; Fiona Masterson; Mark Campbell; Niall McSweeney; Oisin Keelen; Andrew Flaus; Mary Dempsey; Paul Gormley; Liam McDwyer; Tony Hall; Bonnie Long, and Sharon Flynn.

We look forward to seeing innovative uses: of Turnitin to support student writing and feedback; the uses of wikis with Irish and German operational engineering students; mmolecules and movies in biochemistry; and the use of online meeting rooms to facilitate primary care clinicians' teaching and learning (to name but a few NUIG highlights at the event).

Registration for EdTech2010 is now open, and looks like being an inspiring 2-day event. Registration details available here.
