CESI Conference 2018 Rescheduled
Early in February we highlighted the upcoming CESI National Conference, scheduled for March 3rd and 4th. However, Storm Emma and the Beast from the East put toll to these plans with postponement of the annual conference until a later date. Well, the CESI Executive haven’t wasted anytime and have rearranged the Conference and TeachMeet for the coming weekend, March 9th & 10th. So good news on two fronts, firstly the Conference is going ahead (A must-go event for educators interested in digital learning) and secondly if you couldn’t make last weekend you can register here for this one.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Shaping Tomorrow Today” with keynote addresses delivered by Elizabeth Oldham, Richard Millwood (Professor in Mathematics and visiting Research Professor respectively, at Trinity College Dublin) and Stephen Howell (Academic Program Manager for Microsoft Ireland).
This annual showcase has been central to CESI’s work since its founding in 1973 and this year’s conference promises an even larger programme than last year with a greater mix of presentations and hands-on workshops. As always, delegates will have opportunities to engage with fellow educators from all levels of the Irish education system, sharing ideas, best practice and discussing issues.
In addition, the conference will be preceded by the usual TeachMeet (#tmcesi). The TeachMeet is a relaxed, informal night where educators meet to share ideas that help their practice and have a bit of fun while learning something new. It is a great way to meet and connect with other educators. This year’s conference TeachMeet will take place on Friday 9th March in E Block, St Patricks Campus Drumcondra beginning at 7pm.
