    Digital Learning Resources on a Shoestring

    16 November 2015 at 'The Talks Room', The National Archives, Kew

    For details of the complementary event running at TNA the following day click here.

     

    Are you interested in experimenting with digital learning but feel unsure how or where to start? Or perhaps you are already involved in planning or developing digital learning, and would like an update on best practice and tips for achieving more with less. If so, this training day is for you.

    Curated and delivered by Martin Bazley, the day will consist of interactive and hands-on workshop-type presentations with tips and practical demonstrations about:

    • how to get started in this area when you have limited resources
    • how you can get your users engaged and reach out to new audiences
    • how to make resources sustainable in the medium and long term

    Everyone is welcome but the event may be particularly relevant to archivists, education/outreach officers and other professionals working in small and medium-sized organisations.

    Martin Bazley, Director of Martin Bazley & Associates, has more than 10 years' experience researching, developing and evaluating digital learning resources and other digital technology projects. He is Chair of the Digital Learning Network (DLNET), and acts as Mentor and Monitor for digital elements of HLF projects.
