CollegesWales Technical Conference 2017

Gregynog Hall
Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 May 2017

This conference provides a unique opportunity for FE and Skills IT and ILT staff from all corners of Wales to meet and share ideas over a two-day period in the idyllic surroundings of Gregynog Hall.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Enhancing Learning without Compromising the Organisation’. The programme is a mix of technology and pedagogy intended to appeal to both IT technical staff and ILT practitioners, with speakers from across the FE sector in Wales. The purpose is to demonstrate creative ways to support and inspire our students using technology, and what systems and hardware we might need to underpin them.
