Sakai Paris Speakers Announced

paris metro signI’m extremely pleased to announce that Diana Laurillard, Professor of Learning with Digital Technologies at the London Knowledge Lab, will be the keynote speaker for the 9th Sakai Conference in Paris. Diane is a recognized authority in technology-based teaching and learning and author of the excellent book Rethinking University Teaching: A conversational framework for the effective use of learning technology.  She will be speaking on Wednesday morning, July 2nd. You won’t want to miss it.

I’m also pleased to note that we have confirmed two excellent featured speakers. James Dalziel, Director of the Macquarie E-Learning Centre Of Excellence at University of Macquarie and the creator of LAMS, will be speaking on Learning Design and pedagogy. Wendy Mackay, Research Director with INRIA, Futurs, in France, will be speaking about some of her lab’s work on interaction design. The lab is called In|Situ| and has a cool blog (check out the pico projector video…I want one of those).

And now is a great time to register for the conference and reserve your hotel room. For those who have submitted proposals we hope to get acceptances out by the end of next week.

See you in Paris!
