Free e-learning events in Canberra

Last week I took part in a free workshop on"How to write a business case for e-learning", sponsored by the Australian Government. This was so popular, it will be repeated March 2008. I found this out from the very useful e-mail newsletter put out by Kerry Manikis, ACT E-learning Coordinator (contact Kerry to be put on the list or subscribe to the national Australian Flexible Learning Framework news RSS feed which includes ACT events):
Flexible Learning Toolboxes Series 10 Breakfast Launch - Tuesday 25 March
The Series 10 Toolboxes address competencies in the General Construction, Water, Competitive Manufacturing, Retail and Community Services Training Packages. These will be of interest to a range of RTO's in the ACT. Flexible Learning Toolboxes represent excellence in harnessing online instructional design strategies and multi media interactivity to develop online learning resources that are engaging, comprehensive and fully customisable.

If so then please contact me about your project idea so that I can assist you in determining if your concept fits within the 2008 guidelines for an ACT E-learning Innovations grant. ...
