Layers @ AMEE 2016

AMEE 2016 

27-31 August 2016

Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB), Barcelona, Spain

Learning Layers is delighted to be back at AMEE 2016 which will take place this year between 27 – 31 August 2016, at the Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB), Barcelona, Spain.

On Monday 29 August 2016 we will be running a BarCamp on Informal Learning and Technology 13:30 – 17:30.  Our theme for this session will be informal learning and technology.  Together we will explore and share innovative approaches to using technology to support such learning.  Join us in sharing your knowledge/experiences at the BarCamp – we could even continue over dinner if desired!

Facilitators; Sebastian Dennerlein (Austria), Dr John Bibby (UK), Raymond Elferink (Netherlands), Micky Kerr (UK), Natalie Lafferty (UK), David Topps (Canada), Tamsin Treasure-Jones (UK).

We are now in the final year of the project. The Healthcare tools which we have been developing Bits & Pieces, Confer and Living Documents are all being field-tested in real healthcare work settings and training and support material is being developed in preparation for the pilots this year. Our Learning Layers @ AMEE video gives a very quick overview of the project. If you would like to get a sense of the current state of each tool then you can watch short screencasts of the tools in use here.

Throughout the conference we will again have an exhibition stand.  Last year we had many visitors who prompted some great discussions, insights and plans for further work.

Visitors will be able to find out more about the tools, the project and our dreams for the future. Watch demos, play with the tools and meet some of the Learning Layers team.
