Conference Programme

Showcase session participation guidance


The regional workshops in March 2010 for Taking forward change in technology-enhanced education provided an opportunity for participating teams to explore and discuss key drivers, issues and challenges, and to identify possible actions including discussions to take forward in their own institutions.

The focus for the concluding one-day conference for the ‘Taking forward change in technology-enhanced education’ events is Cascading strategic interventions within and across institutions.

The date for the conference is Wednesday 23rd June, at the University of Bolton’s Dean Campus. Our keynote speaker will be Professor Bill Olivier who will address key issues in technology strategy and the sustainability of HE.

In what will be a highly participative day, institutional teams or members thereof who attended the workshops are invited to present showcases of institutional initiatives in technology-enhanced education relating to one or more of the conference themes.

Colleagues who did not have a chance to participate in the regional workshops are also very welcome to submit proposals for showcase presentations, or to attend as delegates. We will be aiming to accommodate as rich and varied a range of showcases as possible.

On the day, the showcases (15 mins each) will be presented in ‘short bursts’ followed by facilitated workshop activities designed to turn participant experiences into strategy cascade designs which address the question “if this is your experience, what can we learn from it and how would you teach it to someone else?”

Conference proceedings will be published in a form which captures both the case studies themselves, and the strategy cascade activity designs that arise from the conference which will contribute to open learning resources for strategy development within the sector.

Further information including conference themes and the format for abstracts can be found in the attached Conference Call (PDF).

Deadline for the submission of short abstracts (up to 300 words) for the 15 minute showcases is Monday 14th June.

Please submit to the conference administrator Anne Wardrope at a.wardrope@napier.ac.uk (Tel 0131 455 6108).

If you would like to attend the conference as a non-presenting delegate, please let Anne Wardrope know by Monday 14th June.

The Cascading strategic interventions within and across institutions conference is part-funded through JISC and is free to attend.
