The following provides information about how we like to work with sponsors. We like to work closely with our sponsors to ensure that the experience is mutually beneficial for both you and our participants. If you have questions or your company would like become a supporter of one or more of our Learning2 conferences please contact Annette Arbenz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Becoming a Supporter of Learning2
Learning2 prides itself to be a conference for educators by educators. All products and services demonstrated, discussed or featured by our presenters are based on the merit of the product/service and the benefit for the participant and/or their professional environment. At all times, the presenter is required to give their honest and unbiased opinion of any product/service; as with all products/services there can be challenges as well as alternatives. Presenters are encouraged to offer a balanced view and their honest experiences. Any affiliation with the company that provides the product/service must be clearly communicated by the presenter, for example, the product is used in their school.
Each Learning2 conference is designed to be self-sustaining and we like to consider supporters and sponsors that bring value to the conference and are innovative and pedagogically aligned with the principles of Learning2. Presentations or workshops that feature or focused specifically on the product/services provided by sponsor will only be possible after detailed evaluation and in specific areas/rooms designated as sponsor spaces. Support by a vendor to a contracted educational presenter; or an educational session run by a teacher referred to L2 by the sponsor may be considered but is not guaranteed.
Sponsors that attend the conference at the invitation of Learning2 do so as active participants and learners. Sponsors are welcome to join a cohort, signing up for Extended sessions and take part in ‘unconference’ sessions and workshops. In order to maintain impartially, sponsors are not permitted to attend any Extended Session, PreConference or workshop where their product/service will be demonstrated or showcased; however, sponsors will be offered a designated space to demonstrate their product, talk about pricing and so on and this will be communicated during the relevant session.
