After lunch, Sarah Holyfield and Christina Smart introduced a discussion session called Mind the Gap. Delegates were asked to divide themselves into teachers and technologists. They were given an imaginary scenario about an institution preparing its 5 year e-learning strategy, and each group was asked to prepare a presentation. The two groups took it in turns to discuss their question for 20 minutes, whilst the other group listened, and the SIG coordinators made notes for the Powerpoint presentation slides below.
