  5/12/08 | 3rd Internaional LAMS & Learning Design Conference, Sydney - LAMS v2.2 Released

The 3rd International LAMS Learning Design Conference is being held at the Macquarie Graduate School of Management, Macquarie University on Friday, December 5th, 2008.

The theme for this conference is "Perspectives on Learning Design" to explore many different approaches to Learning Design. As past LAMS conference attendees will know, LAMS Conferences have had a broad Learning Design focus rather than just being about LAMS. We're changed the title of this (and future) conferences to "LAMS & Learning Design" to acknowledge that the broad range of approaches to the field are always welcome at these conferences.

Keynote Speakers are Professor Diana Laurillard from the University of London; Leanne Cameron, Matthew Kearney and a group of their students to discuss a combined staff/student perspective on LAMS; Paul Gagnon from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and Professor James Dalziel, MELCOE, Macquarie University.

A Summit on Pedagogic Planners is being held on December 8th at the University of Sydney - this event is co-hosted by the University of Sydney, Wollongong University and MELCOE, Macquarie University.

The conference is also the launch date for LAMS V2.2, which includes "Tools Wrappers" for external activity tools from Moodle, .LRN, Google Maps and others. It also includes many other new features and improvements - see the LAMS Roadmap for more details.

The 3rd International LAMS Conference website contains programs, presentation slides, audio and published proceedings and is available here.
