The First International LAMS Conference: Designing the Future of Learning

Design Bash

When? Friday, 16th July, 2010

Where? Thames Suite (click here to see its location)

We will once again be following the LAMS International conference, with a Design Bash in Oxford.  The day is sponsored by JISC and CETIS and will be based around the themes explored at last year's Design Bash (see The event is open to anyone with an interest in how to foster interoperability in creating, running, and sharing learning designs.  It is a very hands on day providing participants the opportunity to test their tools and designs with a number of different systems.

We envisage 3 main categories of activity:
* System Interoperability  - how can we more facilitate import/export of designs between systems?
* Sharing designs - how can we most effectively share our designs? How can we export designs to/from systems?
* Describing designs -what are the most useful representations of designs/patterns? Can we begin to translate these representations and produce a runnable version of them?

To find out more, please don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing s.macneill@

The day will run from 10am - 4pm, and is free of charge (thanks to JISC and CETIS).
