RECAL – an update on our ground-breaking work to prolong the lifespan of technologically obsolete learning resources through disaggregation and script based recompilation (RECAL Project).
MALAWI – A report on our longstanding Scottish government resourced activity to work with colleagues in Malawi in supporting new curricula and embedding e-learning technology into practice (Malawi Projects).

Manager for e-learning Michael Begg will also be acting as opening discussant on a session relating to social media in medical education.
We also expect to be drinking coffee and eating cake. Quite a lot.
