...we'd have someone involved in Wax, wouldn't we? (After all, Higher Education is now an industry, isn't it?)
(The main reason I'm blogging this is to keep a record of the list of attendees, just in case...)
And just by the by - here's a handy list of what I guess is a large part of the UK 'web 2.0 developer community' - the list of attendees from the Carson Systems' Future of Web Apps Summit. (NB Podcasts of presentations from the Summit are available. If you weren't there, they're worth a listen...)
As this is turning into a link post, here's some more workshop related stuff that looks like it may be interesting:
Handouts from the UCISA/UKOLN/CETIS Workshop 2006 on Initiatives & Innovation: Managing Disruptive Technologies.
The forthcoming Institutional Web Management Workshop 2006: Quality Matters Workshop. As an institution that supports an online student body that I guess peaked at around 200, 000 registered students, and that has committed to requiring all registered students to participate in web based learning activities within the next couple of years, I am always surprised when there is not someone from the OU talking about what we've acheived and how we've made it scale...
Also upcoming is blog.ac.uk a conference (or unconference?) which is:
structured around two framework themes. These cut across the educational sectors and are crucial to life-long education provision that meets the needs and abilities of all learners - provision that is vital to empower learners as citizens within multiple communities and in preparing the UK to participate creatively, technologically and economically on a global scale.
1. Deployment of weblogs and related technologies within educational institutions and the learning and teaching environment: navigating risk (morning sessions)
2. Blogging as community practice: impact of weblogs on current and future Personal Learning Environments (afternoon sessions).
I hope to go...mail me if you're going and want to meet up.Posted by ajh59 at May 8, 2006 11:19 PM
