Does the idea of spending a couple of days solving tricky implementation problems (and learning by seeing how others do their PebblePad thing) sound like your kind of awesome? If the answer is yes, then our Super User Academy (SUA) events could be just the ticket. Led by our friendly, PebblePad experts, our SUA's are fun and flexible and have been carefully crafted to take your PebblePad expertise up a notch or two.
The Super User Academy is designed to be a flexible and interactive event with all participants, of different experience levels, contributing to the activities and group discussions throughout both days.

PebbleBash 2020 will take place 10 years to the month since the very first 'Bash. A lot has changed since that first conference. Since then, we've seen a shift in Higher Education towards student-centred, real-world learning and active, authentic assessment, which has seen educators, strategists and technologists seek new ways to support students within and beyond the classroom.
With the LMS or VLE often being too course and content centric to deliver on this ambition and support lifelong and life-wide learning journeys, practitioners across the globe are using PebblePad to chart new courses (and blaze entirely new trails) in learning and teaching. Just like previous 'Bashes, PebbleBash 2020 will be the platform for these trailblazers to share their incredible stories and journeys.

Welcoming students, new and returning, offering engaging and authentic ways to support and manage transition, wellbeing and study via digital workbooks, need not be an ambition resigned to your pedagogical wish list. These practices are already a reality for a global PebblePad community which continues to blaze new trails in the way learning, teaching, tutoring and assessment is designed and delivered. With many of these practices not just becoming more relevant, but essential in light of the 'new normal', our 60-minute Welcome Week and Beyond webinar will share ten diverse examples of this trailblazing practice.

A collaborative event hosted by UKAT and PebblePad
ABOUT THE EVENT
Purposeful personal tutoring is a proactive, intentionally structured process which focuses on student growth and development. With UK universities continuing to adapt to a post-COVID world, and with the Higher Education sector looking ahead to a new academic year, it can come as little surprise that personal tutoring is featuring high on the priority list of many institutions. Offering an effective way to stay in touch with students working remotely, and a purposeful and structured means of helping students grow and flourish, personal tutoring can help students differentiate themselves in a highly competitive job market. This event will explore the benefits of supporting and encouraging students to tell their story effectively and demonstrate how flipped approaches to personal tutoring, supported by eportfolio, can make a significant difference to both student and institutional outcomes.
