Early Bird opens for MoodleMoot AU and Blackboard TLC

Time to get moving Early Birds! The registration for MoodleMoot Australia 2017 and Blackboard TLC 2017 are open. Blackboard Teaching and Learning Conference is being held in Darwin from September 5th to 8th. MoodleMoot Australia is being held in Sydney from September 26th to 28th.

If you watched my presentation 26 Tips to Make You a Better Moodler at iMoot17/Fortnightly Tips, you’ll remember Tip 22 was “Go to a Moot”, and here’s two great education conferences in Australia you can attend this Spring.  Oh I know that BBTLC17 isn’t a Moot per se, but there will be Moodle content there. Blackboard is a Moodle Partner after all. Besides this, I am most definitely covered in that Tip 24 was “Go to a non-Moodle conference or meetup”.

The BBTLC17 Early Bird runs until July 24th, and it will save you $150 if you register for the full conference ($615 over $765). The MootAU17 Early Bird doesn’t have a posted closing date – not sure if this means there’s a limited number of Early Bird tickets that may run out instead of a closing date. It will save you $64 if you sign up for the full three days, but you’ll also receive a MootAU17 t-shirt. And who doesn’t love Moodle swag?

While you’re at it, why not answer MoodleMoot AU’s Call for Presentations? The submission link will remain open until July 31st, so there’s still plenty of time to share your story. And again, presenting at a Moot, Conference or Meetup is another of my 26 Tips. MootAU is always a great venue to make a presentation and meet many fellow Moodlers.

And hey, there’s another conference coming up you might want to know about – WordCamp Brisbane on July 22nd and 23rd. This promises to be a fun event; there was a great contingent of WordPressers from Brisbane at WordCamp Sydney. They’re a fun crowd, and WordCamps are always great to learn and network. There’s no Early Bird, but for the cost of a WordCamp ticket, it’s not really a problem.

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make all these events, but I’m sure going to try. And I hope to bump into you along the way.
