The 2020 conference took place on 13-17 February 2020.
The H818 ‘The Networked Practitioner’ online module is part of the MA Online and Distance Education programme run by the Institute of Educational Technology (IET) at the Open University UK. This online conference is presented using the Open University’s Online Rooms, powered by Adobe Connect.
Each H818 student contributed a short presentation to the conference and there were keynote presentations as listed below.

The programme includes links to the abstracts and posters for each of the students’ presentations, upon which you are invited to ask questions or make comments – these may be answered by the student on their page directly, or may be answered during their presentation itself.
