Innovation Seminar I: Emergent Technologies
The JISC-SSBR Institutional Innovation seminar to feedback and consult on some of the conclusions from the synthesis of Institutional Innovation projects takes place as follows
Date: Tuesday 16th November 2010 [add to your calendar]
Who should attend: The seminar is open to anyone who has an interest in the impact of emergent technologies on institutions in further and higher education.
You are warmly invited to participate in the first SSBR Innovation Seminar, which will focus on the lessons learned from projects that have implemented emergent technologies – such as mobile technologies, podcasting and lecture capture - at a corporate level (i.e. across the institution rather than local innovation by individuals).
Emergent technologies are those technical innovations that are being implemented to meet new and existing institutional requirements. Whilst mobile learning, recording lectures, or making video and sound recordings available are not new, these applications are being implemented across institutions with much greater flexibility and ease of use.
Emergent technologies are used to promote institutions to international students, meet student demands for better feedback, support distance learners, and improve student retention and motivation. What have we learned from their use to date, and how can we support more institutions to use them?
Participants will be asked to consider the conclusions from the synthesis activities and respond to questions from their own experience. We will use your feedback to inform the development of a series of briefings on lessons from the Institutional Innovation Programme.
We look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
