The conference will focus on how digital technologies can bring cost and efficiency savings to universities and colleges.
For the past nine years the JISC annual conference has been bringing expertise and knowledge to over 750 senior managers, academics, library professionals, teachers, policy makers and IT experts from across education in the UK and internationally. The 2011 programme consists of a variety of keynotes, sessions, worskshops, demonstrations and exhibition stands providing delegates with the opportunity to seek advice, guidance and inspiration to realise the potential of their existing technologies within their institutions.
Vice chancellor of the University of Bristol, Professor Eric Thomas, will be delivering the opening keynote speech.
The 2011 conference will include workshops, demos, plenary sessions, an exhibition and networking opportunities to provide:
- ‘here and now’ advice, guidance and support
- practical and pragmatic steps your institution can take now
- a chance to explore the options with others
This will be followed by sessions combining strategic guidance on areas like digital literacy and shared services with more hands-on advice on topics like improving research management and student assessment.
