MoodleMoot & MaharaHui will once again welcome the French-speaking contingent of the Moodleverse, as well as those interested in the Open Source digital portfolio solution Mahara. Now in its twelfth edition, the francophone MoodleMoot opened to the Mahara community in 2012.
The organization of the event is led by Jean Moulin Lyon III, a public university who will also play as host. L’Université‘s is so intertwined with the cultural geography of the I-century Roman city that its campus gets some credit in UNESCO’s designation of Lyon as a World Heritage Site. This alone makes a “weekend visit” an unmissable sight.
Which is not to say the “Moot” will not be fascinating. As per usual, the MoodleMoot will feature workshops, keynotes, general practice and academic presentations, panels and socialization and networking moments.
Worth noting, Le MoodleMoot & MaharaHui will adopt an ecologically responsable approach, looking to reduce waste and save resources throughout the event’s run.
A call for presenters is open to teachers, researchers, students, administrators, developers and “pedagogical engineers”; and will close on April 1st. Selected speakers will be notified on April 11th, and the final program soon after. Interested parties can submit proposals for Plénière (60-90 minutes), Communication (30-45min), Démonstration (15-30) et Atelier (Workshop, 90 to 120 minutes long).
“Early Bird” registration is open until April 30th, and all registrations end on May 29th. Fees start at €195 for basic education professionals and graduate students.
