Brief Reflections on EdTech 2016 Conference

This year’s Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA) conference known as EdTech 2016 (May 26-27) was held in the Law Society Education Building in Dublin. The conference theme was “ReConstituting TEL: Rising to the Challenge”, with three keynote speakers: Audrey Watters, Rhona Sharpe and Mike Feerick.


We are pleased to report that NIDL staff made a major contribution to the conference programme, with a total of around 20 presentations, short Gasta sessions and/or workshops, which equates to approximately 20% of offerings coming from Dublin City University. A full list of NIDL staff presentations is available from our list of scholarly outputs on our website. The conference was very well organised and the general consensus is that this year’s event rates as one of the best EdTech conferences in recent times. Congratulations to everyone involved in making the conference such an outstanding success.
