What learning days is a space to reflect on technical communication. It will entirely take place over Zoom. All sessions have been recorded and are available free of charge on CRT’s web site. All webinars had a round table format, as to avoid the one-way one-truth conference format and to make them more lively.

What‘s logo displays the four guiding threads you can find on each round table page.

  • So what (current situation and practices)
  • What’s next (tracks)
  • What the heck (identifying the obstacles)
  • What else (more tracks opening up the debate)

Members of the organising comittee were Jennifer O’Neill (Brussels),  Françoise Jouan (Carentoir, France), Catherine Kirkby (Montpellier, France), Julie Sauvage (Montpellier, France), and Jean-Paul Bardez (Aix-en-Provence, France).
