Where do I go?

Finding this year's #eLearning2.0 conference is very easy because it is in the same building as the main Brunel University London reception. It is known as the Eastern Gateway Building.

When you arrive at the road entrance to the University, the Eastern Gateway Building is immediately to the right. Registration for eLearning 2.0 will be in the foyer on the ground floor, close to the Reception desk. The main conference room is room 111 on the first floor - turn left out of the lift. Coffee, tea, fruit juice, and pastries will be waiting for you!

Conference Programme Available

The #elearning2.0 conference programme is available for download. Hardcopies will also be placed in your conference pack available when you register.
