I attended the What Works conference at the London Book Fair yesterday, for the first time. For a half day conference, a lot was packed in.
The two sessions I found most useful was one on copyright issues, and one on global trends and how they might impact on education and potentially, therefore, on educational publishing.
The conference was chaired by Lis Tribe, from Hodder Education. (Lis was the person who commissioned me to write Managing ICT twenty or so years ago. That was my first 'proper' published book -- I'd written one for a company, and self-published a few books. Even today I get people coming up to me and telling me that they loved that book, which is always nice to hear!)
I'll be reporting on the conference in due course. In the meantime, you may wish to check out my London Book Fair Bulletins on my Write! website. The first one is here:
