Welcome to MELSIG

Welcome to the Media-Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group site.

Join us in a Learning Spaces #Twalk on 28th July 2017

twitter-bird-twalkWe are running a second #Twalk (a walk with a tweetchat) about learning spaces, this time with the theme ‘Crossing Boundaries’. Lasting an hour from 14:30 BST, it will be part of the Association of Learning Technology’s Learning Spaces SIG event in Sheffield. You are all invited to take part in the walk.
Here is the route with timings for Sheffield participants: Sheffield_LS_Twalk. We encourage participants located elsewhere to schedule their own Twalks to coincide using the same hashtag (#TwalkBoundaries), same timings, and same topics.

Further information will be posted here and on this Twalk guidance page.


Our most recent event took place at Edge Hill University on the 31st May 2017. Its focus was Digital Placemaking

We ran the #Twalk as part of the event. This was an international co-ordinated learning spaces walk lasting one hour. Find out more about the Twalk (Tweetchat structured walk) here.
