Societies and E-Learning: Lessons from Experience (Fireside chat)
Tuesday 15th August
16:00 – 17:30 BST (UK)
11:00 – 12:30 EDT (Eastern USA)
In our August fireside chat, we bring together three people who have extensive experience with creating and supporting e-learning products and platforms for societies. Come and join us as we talk about what we wished we had known as we embarked on this journey, what we learned, and what advice we would share with others starting down this road. One of our contributors is on the precipice of launching their new product; another has overseen both the launch of an e-learning program from scratch and now works with a more mature established one, and we are lucky to be joined by a vendor who has seen MANY societies grapple with the challenges raised by this endeavour.
As usual, this will be an interactive session, and immediately after the fireside chat there will be a live Q&A with the speakers which should be a lively affair.
We’ll talk for just short of an hour, and then open up a round table discussion for you to bring your thoughts, ideas, questions and challenges to our friendly Society Street discussion. Come and join us!
We’ll be talking on the 15th August 2023.
Thanks to the continued support of our sponsors, all Society Street events are free to attend.
The session will be available on demand on this page later.
Crises for Publishing Societies are Not New! A History of Scientific Journals (Interview)
Join Sam Burrell, our Program Chair, as she talks to Aileen about her new book, which explores the history of the Royal Society’s Philosophical Transactions from its very earliest days. (It’s an OA and you can find it HERE!)
What has this got to do with today’s Learned Societies? It might surprise you. Finding out about how we got to where we are today offers surprising insights into the business models of mission-led publishing societies, and shows us how we got to where we are today. (And besides, it’s really interesting.)
After the interview, Aileen and Sam will be joining a Zoom call open to all Society Street attendees to continue the conversation and invite you to ask Aileen — and each other — the questions that Sam didn’t get to. The interview will be made available on demand afterwards, but the Zoom call will not (and it’s often the best bit)!

Feedback from Society Street 2018 attendees:
“Talks were excellent, and networking with others was invaluable.”
“[I valued] seeing the whole picture, and not just one part or aspect, which other conferences seem to focus on.”
