The next free MELSIG event will be held in Sheffield, on Wednesday, 27th October

There will be a special focus for this event:

Media-Enhanced Feedback: A workshop to explore how digital media can be used for giving students feedback


The day will be held in conjunction with the ASSET programme (http://www.reading.ac.uk/asset/), and will be the usual mix of workshops and presentations.  Come and join us to find out how various digital media technologies are being used by practitioners. An event with a similar focus will be run by ASSET in the south of England in December or January.
