hNL21 event preview: 

With the 2021 event moving online only, we took advantage of synchronous and asynchronous mediums.

  • We hosted a live Phenomenology of Practice workshop spread over two afternoons on 10th and 11th June
  • We are using a Signal group for the post event chat space with a link to our library of resources.
  • As Nina explains in her June VLOG, for some of us, the event is a catalyst for written contributions towards the networked learning conference in 2022 and an edited collection, such as a new book in the Springer Networked Learning series. The MS Team will remain a platform for this work in the months after the June 2021 event.


More details will be published through the private dedicated MS Team site in due course.

Fees & Conditions 

Thanks to the generous support of the Networked Learning Conference Consortium and the online nature of the event, attendance is free, but pre-registration to this limited capacity event is mandatory.  See Event Registration page. To secure the quality of the event, we expect that participants who register and gain access to the MS Team site materials and event Signal group will attend and actively contribute during the two live online sessions. You should feel no such obligation to participate actively in the event Signal group chat – we certainly welcome that but understand people have significant commitments to balance.

Registration close 9th June 2021
