  • How many participants will there be at the conference? We are expecting about 180 participants. Many will attend the whole conference with day attendees expected to keep total numbers roughly consistent both days.
  • What are the timings of the conference? The conference programme will be available in early 2017.
  • I want to book for only one day and want to know when someone is speaking.  Once the programme is published (late January), you will be able to see all scheduled sessions. Please note, however, that sometimes speakers, even keynotes, have to change times as a result of other circumstances and so we cannot guarantee that you will get to hear a specific speaker. The only way to be sure is to attend the entire conference.
  • I cannot come to the conference but understand that I can participate in some sessions remotely. Yes, you can follow key points via Twitter using #oer17. We may also be able to stream some of the principle sessions, mainly keynotes. To keep up to date with news about the conference, follow us on Twitter @A_L_T , @OERConf, #OER17.
