HEA Conference, Day 1

I'm at the HEA Conference in Harrogate.

Day 1 has provided lots of opportunities for reflection, but limited insight so far. Bill Rammell is too busy to join us. Among the highlights of the day have been what JISC has been spending its money on, and the fact that most students don't seem terribly keen on ePortfolios or PDP. The highlight for me has definitely been several talks putting students in a much more prominent role in negotiating learnng delivery. But I suspect that the main value of this meeting is going to be the networking opportunities available when I have a glass in my hand, so that's where I'm off to right now - more tomorrow.
