Learning Technologies 2019: Backchannel and social media team

Learning Technologies 2019 is nearly upon us. A new date, a new venue…the stage is set for the greatest learning show on earth, including the continued commitment of the event to its social media coverage via a dedicated team of L&D professionals. Here’s the upfront information you need to know in order to turn on, tune in and um, learn lots…

The backchannel

As ever, the place to have eyes on is the main conference hashtag #LT19UK. This is used on all conference updates across social media. We’ll be using Twitter of course but also branching out across other channels like Instagram and embracing this year’s use of video tool Storytagger. If you haven’t checked out the conference speakers previewing their sessions then check them out via that link. This main hashtag is used by exhibitors and attendees of the Learning Technologies part of the exhibition. It’s a great way of tapping into people to meet, things to read and what to see before the event, not just during.

Our contributors will be working hard to share insights and key takeaways from every single session of the conference. We use individual session hashtags so you can hone in on the specifics of certain topics or presentations. So, if you particularly want to know what an individual speaker has to say then you can just search #T1S5 for example. All session tags are detailed below (we don’t have specific tags for the keynotes because so many people share from these that you can just follow the overall #LT19UK hashtag and keep up).
