A one day event in Birmingham jam-packed with Pebble goodness.

We were devastated to first postpone and then cancel our large biennial PebbleBash event earlier this year.  The situation with Covid and travel restrictions at the time made planning a successful event just too tricky.  But things have changed fast and we don't want to miss the opportunity to bring our fabulous community together!  We're super excited to announce a face-to-face Community Event (aka MiniBash) coming to The Studio in Birmingham on Wednesday June 15th.

If you have been to a 'Bash before you'll know that they're friendly, fun, and jam-packed with opportunities to learn.  Come for practitioner stories and examples of trailblazing in student-centred learning, assessment and portfolio practice (and how these topics are set to be trends for years to come).  Come to hear from PebblePad about our latest releases, super new features and our future plans.  Come to reconnect with the amazing PebblePad community - and with our growing team. And, as with any PebblePad event - come for the cake!

Speaking of cake... it happens to be PebblePad's 18th birthday, and what a lot we've learnt along the way! And, what a time to be maturing as an essential component of the learning, teaching and assessment ecosystem.

Birthdays normally mean presents... Our gift to you, a free place at what promises to be a great event.
