E-Learning in Practice Conference - Bristol - September 13th

E-Learning in Practice Conference - Bristol - September 13th

The announcement and call for papers has just been published.

E-Learning in Practice is a 1 day national conference on the application of elearning within and to the NHS and its staff. Organised by the same team behind the 'Evidence in Practice' conferences, the conference is to be held in Bristol (UK) on Wednesday September 13th, 2006. The conference will have a mix of plenary, parallel and poster sessions, together with hands-on opportunities to learn more about elearning.

We are inviting oral and poster abstracts on three broad themes;
- E-learning experiences within the NHS
- E-Learning at the cutting edge
- E-learning of / within evidence-based practice / clinical effectiveness

The closing date for both oral and poster abstracts is three weeks away, August 14th.

We have four excellent speakers who will set the scene for the development of elearning in the NHS
- Mr John Bewick (Director of Strategic Development, NHS South West)
- Prof Sally Glen (Pro-Vice Chancellor, University of Wolverhampton)
- Dr Luisa Dillner (Head of BMJ Learning, BMJ Publishing Group)
- Prof Phil Candy (Director of Education, Training and Development, NHS Connecting for Health)

In selecting abstracts for presentation we aim to showcase the small local projects as much as the national headliners.

- Those with corporate or departmental responsibility for elements of education and training with the NHS
- Educators looking to incorporate elearning into their NHS programmes
- Content providers (NHS, academic or commercial) of elearning relevant to;
- core/mandatory training
- specialist training
- continuing professional development
- NHS staff keen to integrate elearning into their personal development plans

The delegate fee is a modest £50. We're not out to make some huge profit, and you're probably just as fed up as we are with conferences that charge in excess of £300 per day. If you're interested in elearning and the NHS - we want you to come, not stay away. As a final inducement/reward to come, if your oral or poster abstract is chosen for presentation, you will get a guaranteed free place (ie we tear up any received booking). All booking information is on the conference website, but with a limit of 150 delegates, places will go quickly.

As with our previous EiP conferences, we are not charging exhibitors extra, but space will be limited so we will be choosy. More information on the conference website.

Please visit the conference website for a more detailed programme, registration details, abstract submission, and to see what happened at our previous EiP conferences.

Thanks you for reading this far - and of course please forward to colleagues who you think may be interested to attend, or better still, present.
