The Scottish Learning Festival is in Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th September 2008. It is the biggest education event in Scotland and one of the most unique education events in the world – it’s free!
I’ve presented at the Scottish Learning Festival (SLF) for the last few years and this year I have a set myself a massive agenda. Before the SLF it’s become customary within the ScotEdu Blogosphere to up-load your itinerary.
I hope to see some of you in the keynotes, seminars and exhibition space. Drop me an email if you fancy meeting up for a coffee, beer or just a chat.
I’ll also be at Teachmeet on the Wednesday evening.
