Upcoming one-day conference, Oxford, January 2018

As this year closes in already filling up my diary for 2018… First event London the books for me is a brilliant and rammed one-day event in Oxford about ‘materialities and mobilities in Education’. 

I’ll be presenting my latest about how technology is shaping transitions into higher education. The entire day looks amazing and I’m hoping to catch as many talks as possible. 
Apparently the event is fully booked AND there’s a waiting list… So if you’re coming, I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
