Session: 30th April, 2010
SDF Spring Conference (http://www.staffdevelopment.ac.uk/?q=content/sdf-spring-conference )
Facilitators: Andy Ramsden

The aim of the session is to raise awareness of how mobile devices can offer an extra dimension to the staff developer in terms of delivering and managing courses and people. The intention is to cover a number of common activities we undertake and model how the use of mobile technologies may make them more efficient and effective through transforming the learning spaces we use.
The session will involve working through a number of staff development scenarios identified by the audience. It will also rely on the use of technologies which most people have in their pockets, so not requiring the staff development team to invest in providing new technologies.
The primary question is, how might we (staff developers) use mobile technologies within our staff development sessions?
To answer this question, I'll focus on two scenarios;
The key messages I'd like you to take from this session are there is significant potential for the use of mobile technology to technology enrich learning spaces (faciliator led use), as well as changing the pedagogical model and the learning space. It would be suggested exploring the former with a very relatively simply wins.
In terms of the wins, I'll enhance this workshop with some different uses.
