Time: 12:00 AM
The NSW Learning Analytics working group will hold its first meetup of 2016 here at UTS. We warmly invite colleagues from across state to join us on Wed 3rd Feb in the stunning new Frank Gehry-designed Chau Chak Wing building in the Level 3 collaborative lecture theatre (CB08.03.005).
This is not a formal conference, but the chance to connect with peers to discuss work-in-progress.
To register (free!) please email Georgia.Markakis@uts.edu.au with [NSWLAWG] in the subject line to assist, and any dietary requirements.
We look forward to welcoming you to UTS.
