We’d like to think that they got the idea from us – the eLearning Network, the long established group for elearning professionals across the UK and further afield, has launched regional meetups for members.

Just like weelearning, eLN regional events are free local meetups for people involved with or interested in elearning to get together and talk about, the latest tech, what we’re working on, new trends and all that good stuff, all the while enjoying a refreshing beverage and perhaps a decent burger.

So what could make more sense than weelearning and eLN getting together here in Bristol?

  • weeLN
  • Wednesday 19 August 2015
  • 6.30pm till later
  • The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, King Street, Bristol, BS1 4EF
  • Barcamp style – three tables, three speakers
  • Theme: New Initiatives

We’re adopting a barcamp style – three speakers will get debate going by sharing their experiences with new initiatives they’ve tried in their organisations. You find out more about their successes and not such successes. You’ll have time to ask them why it was worth trying and how they’d do it differently the next time before we rotate the tables. Think of it as speed-dating for ideas. After we’ve done a lap it’s time to follow up your conversations and make new connections with weelearners and eLN members alike, including, we hope, current eLN Chair, John Curran.

We’ve chosen the Volley on King Street as it’s near to rail and bus connections as well as offering lots of parking nearby. In the heart of what I can only describe as Bristol’s hipster craft beer quarter, it serves good food and great beer.

The eLearning Network are also offering events in Derby and Bracknell. You can find out more, as well as register for a FREE ticket for weeLN on the regional events page of the eLearning Network website.

Join us to seek some respite from the kids being home all day and remind yourself of the real reason you get up in the mornings – elearning!
