The theme of this year’s conference is scaling-up, though many of you may prefer to think of this in terms of moving to the next level. Our intention is to reflect the growing maturity of practice with portfolios, portfolio-inspired learning and teaching, and the platforms that support these approaches. We have observed that the institutions and organisations we work with are grappling with a growing list of challenges to which technologies like ours seem to provide an effective answer - especially when deployed thoughtfully, and at scale.

We are seeking submissions that talk to the transition from small scale, often single-point use of PebblePad to uses which are more fully-integrated into the wider learning experience. We are particularly interested in showcasing and celebrating successful program-wide or institution-wide projects. Like all previous ‘Bashes there will be a strong focus on pedagogy, especially on learning and assessment design. But it is impossible to really scale up without senior stakeholder involvement, strategic planning, good project management, and having carefully thought through integrations with other institutional systems – so we would like to include presentations which consider ideas, challenges and successes from these perspectives.

Of course, we know that scaling up means different things to different people in different contexts. We are also aware that some people are doing remarkable work at smaller scale and so we will also provide space in the programme to showcase the very best of this work.

Here are some key dates for your diary:

Deadline for submissions - Thursday, 29th March 2018
