Simon Fitzpatrick and Danny McAtominey travelled to Dublin last month, presenting at the Ireland International Conference on Education.
Simon's workshop focused on hands-on approaches to instructional design. Drawing on good working practice he helped the attendees to get started with designing and developing effective e-learning materials.
Danny ran a session on action based e-learning, which enabled the participants to see how sound educational frameworks can be used to create engaging e-learning.
The IICE-2012 conference lived up to its international appeal, with delegates from as far as New Zealand, Canada and Asia.
It was an excellent conference with lots of networking and interesting discussions, Simon said.
We talked to a number of delegates who seemed to support our views on current trends relating to educational technology.
Danny was impressed by the way the conference was organised.
With 3 themed sessions to choose from each hour it was much easier to focus on personal interests when selecting sessions compared to many other large conferences, he said.
It was refreshing to hear about the different approaches to e-learning being taken in education across the globe, which strengthened our belief in the e-learning training we offer at Netskills, he added.
