    19. What do our meetings look like? • Some face-to-face and online too • Face-to-face for networking and collaboration • Online presence good but not fluffy • Face-to-face • Sharing in between meetings – development of WordPress for research areas etc • Face-to-face for ad hoc conversations and sharing of ‘real life’ learning tech • Face-to-face for a significant amount of time because of the amount of travel involved, so needs to be focused (and possible pre-preparation needed) • External presenters or a theme at face-to-face meetings • Lunchtime webinars for 45 mins on a specific topic • Make sure we’re at different locations too • Sub-meetings / niche groups for follow-up and to feed back to wider group • Pecha Kucha presentations as part of webinar from specialist groups • Buffet with desserts – have your cake and eat it!! • Frequency? One general meeting per year and a number of symposiums / webinar? • Inclusive – every organisation (and consultancies) represented where possible • Make sure that it represents full scope of learning tech, every sector represented • Take advantage of ‘local’ for face-to-face, it has real value • Small groups to help generate items for next meeting / workshops etc • Face-to-face – not just looking at projects but also looking at themes or common issues
