10th January 2007: Exchange (s)mart

This day provided opportunities to showcase current plans in e-learning research and seek support, collaboration and ideas – and network with others working in the field. Following the successful launch of this approach last year, participants were invited to submit any short outlines of their research plans in advance and engage with potential collaborators. Gilly Salmon and the BDRA team were available for a research surgery on collaboration and funding opportunities.
