The theme of this year’s conference is scaling-up, though many of you may prefer to think of this in terms of moving to the next level. Our intention is to reflect the growing maturity of practice with portfolios, portfolio-inspired learning and teaching, and the platforms that support these approaches. We have observed that the institutions and organisations we work with are grappling with a growing list of challenges to which technologies like ours seem to provide an effective answer - especially when deployed thoughtfully, and at scale.

We are seeking submissions that talk to the transition from small scale, often single-point use of PebblePad to uses which are more fully-integrated into the wider learning experience. We are particularly interested in showcasing and celebrating successful program-wide or institution-wide projects. Like all previous ‘Bashes there will be a strong focus on pedagogy, especially on learning and assessment design. But it is impossible to really scale up without senior stakeholder involvement, strategic planning, good project management, and having carefully thought through integrations with other institutional systems – so we would like to include presentations which consider ideas, challenges and successes from these perspectives.

Of course, we know that scaling up means different things to different people in different contexts. We are also aware that some people are doing remarkable work at smaller scale and so we will also provide space in the programme to showcase the very best of this work.

Here are some key dates for your diary:

About the event

Taking advantage of our Pebble HQ team being in Australia for the PebbleBash conference we are delighted to offer the following webinar:

Any technology used at enterprise scale can only work well if it is thoughtfully and thoroughly integrated with other systems and platforms. In this webinar, aimed squarely at the more technically-minded, PebblePad's techie triad – Development Director, Toni Lavender; Chief Technical Officer, Andy Everson; and Integration Support Lead, Mathew Evans - will discuss the following topics:

• Account management including new API features to facilitate account housekeeping
• An update on our reporting project to provide statistics on engagement
• LMS integrations including details of upcoming Blackboard Ultra support
• Some examples of what it is possible to achieve with an API integration
• Options for reusing existing content from other services

Along with this they will discuss the development roadmap, and facilitate a discussion around the integration needs and expectations of the community. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions and schedule 1-2-1 meetings (in person at PebbleBash or online) to have more in-depth discussions on specific topics.
