As well as the annual conference, ALDinHE hosts several one-day events, known as Regional Symposia, throughout the year. These encourage the development of local communities and networks of practice, offer the opportunity to present on emerging work and provide hosts with the support necessary for them to gain experience in organising external events. Regional networking will remain one focus for this group, but the 2020 experience has demonstrated that there is both demand and capacity for national events delivered online. Therefore this group will be building upon the great success of the LD@3 workshop series developed by the Conference Committee and offering similar events throughout the year.
The new Events Working Group will also collaborate with other ALDinHE groups to offer developmental and networking opportunities for all members of the Learning Development community by bringing together groups of people with shared interests or priorities.
We are looking for people skilled in organisation, marketing or networking and who have the finger on the pulse of evolving issues in LD.
