I'm pleased to be able to announce themes, formats and dates for the next Emerge Online conference.

Taking place in the week of CETIS's conference on Learning, Teaching and the Institution, Emerge's Altered States conference will explore the complex relationships between practitioners, innovation and institutions. Emerge members are invited to contribute their experiences, perspectives and ideas to a range of online activities.

We'll be kicking off the week on the evening of Monday 24th November with a brand new, and typically provocative and thought provoking Emerging Mondays Radio Show.

Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th are the CETIS conference dates. Emerge attendees will no doubt be posting their thoughts to Emerge and Twitter.

Thursday 27th is the first day of the Emerge online conference proper, and we hope to see all projects well represented and ready to take part. Our day's keynote will reflecting on the major themes and discussions from Learning, Teaching and the Institution, and then Emerge projects and participants addressing (or challenging) these. This is going to be our first attempt at 'unconference online', and we are looking forward to a fun and rewarding experience for everyone.

Emerge will host a Second Life social on the evening of the 27th, so whether you haven't ventured in world yet, or enjoy having an excuse to show off that new outfit, the team will be on hand to help you. Following on from our fashion show and tower building events, there will be a new challenge for your avatars to get their digital teeth into.

Friday 28th will open with what promises to be a lively and heated debate, and continuing our focus on the relationship between innovation and institutional provision will be on The Future of the VLE.

Please make sure you have the 27th and 28th of November marked out in your diaries now. Registration information and further details to follow.
