Mindful Education at the AoC Conference 2019

The AoC Annual Conference 2019 is nearly upon us, and we are delighted to be returning as sponsors for another year.

The conference is one of the biggest dates in the FE calendar, and this year is no exception. Here are a few of the ways you can catch up with us:

Breakout session – Tuesday 19th November

On the first day of the conference, Mindful’s Founder and Managing Director, Mark Mckenna, will be hosting a breakout session, where he will be joined by Martin Doel CBE – Visiting Professor at UCL’s Institute of Education and former CEO of the Association of Colleges – and senior management from Walsall College, an OFSTED Grade 1 provider.

Together, they will discuss the DfE’s UK EdTech Strategy, published in April 2019, and what it means for your college. Walsall College’s Jayne Holt (Assistant Principal – Learning Services) and James Norris (Assistant Principal – Commercial Development) will share what they have learnt from their experiences with edtech and blended learning.

Mark and Martin will also be continuing their conversation about further education and edtech, which we captured in a short interview earlier this year.

At the end of the session, attendees will receive copies of our new thought piece document: ‘The Digital Landscape for Further Education’.

AoC Conference Dinner and Awards

We are pleased to be sponsoring this year’s conference dinner, where we will be showing a short video showcasing how we craft our blended learning courses and apprenticeships, and the impact they’ve had for learners.

Exhibition stand

For both days of the conference, our team will be at our stand in the exhibition area. Throughout the conference, we will be giving demonstrations of our course content and Virtual Learning Environments, and insights into the analytics that underpin them.

Mindful Education’s breakout session takes place on Tuesday 19 November, and is titled “2.12 What does DfE’s UK EdTech 2019 Strategy mean for colleges?”.
