The IET Technology Coffee mornings are currently under review

The Institute of Educational Technology at the Open University (UK) hosts a series of technology coffee mornings (IET TCMs) in which different aspects of the use of technology in education is explored, demonstrated and discussed.  The coffee mornings are informal, drop in events for sharing good practice and research.

If you are based on campus please join us for these informal, face-to-face sessions, have a cup of coffee/tea (with biscuits!) and contribute to the discussion.

These events are also broadcast live online for everyone to watch and are recorded for replay.
