ViCEPHEC2015 Storify Backups

EiC
Actually, excitement started more than a few weeks ago…

The publication of the programme really kicked things off

It makes sense that a conference that discusses teaching and learning techniques would use some of them itself. So I probably shouldn't have been surprised to find some flipped sessions on the programme. And that means having to do 'homework' in advance:

A week to go and final preparations are made

And a final reminder of reports from previous VICEPHEC conferences:

I look forward to meeting you all in Nottingham!

@Storify limits us to 1000 tweets so I've not reproduced the excellent pre-conference coverage of @RSC_EiC.

To aid Navigation the Programme is presented here. Unfortunately it is not possible to provide hyperlinks but the titles are reproduced before the relevant tweets.
