St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2007/07/31 - Learning Light, a non-profit centre of excellence in the use of learning technologies in the workplace, has hosted a delegation from Poland on a fact-finding mission to learn about the UK’s multimedia and information systems sector.
Learning Light (LL) and its associates, The MRS Consultancy, have played host to a delegation from MultiKlaster, an EU-funded project which aims to create a ‘cluster of multimedia and information systems’ in Nowy Sqcz, Poland.
Kinga Pawlowska, president of the MultiKlaster board, and Pawlowska’s colleague Elwira Waszkiewicz spent several days with the Yorkshire-based MRS Consultancy in order to learn and share experiences of working with creative and digital businesses. While they were in Yorkshire, the Polish delegation met representatives of the computer games developer, Sumo Digital, as well as Renaissance South Yorkshire, the Workshop, Creative Sheffield and LL.
Among those contributing to the talks that the Poles held while in the UK were Tony Newson, formerly programme chief executive of the Objective 1 Directorate in South Yorkshire; Richard Lukey, of Business Link South Yorkshire and David Patterson, LL’s head of partnerships who is responsible for the LL business support activities in the e-learning cluster. Patterson manages the LL ‘VEN’ of companies which work together to win bids for large contracts jointly and also supports the UK LearnOnline consortium of e-learning companies worldwide.
Mark Pittaway, LL’s CEO, commented: “We were delighted to have this opportunity to demonstrate some of the UK’s capabilities and achievements in the digital industries sector, especially in terms of the application of learning technologies in the workplace.”
