Innovating e-Learning 2010 Online Conference : JISC

This theme showcases practice from universities and colleges and shows how they are responding to the key drivers for change and embedding innovative practice across their institutions. It will explore:

  • How are innovations adopted and embedded?
  • How are mobile and handheld devices changing learning and teaching? How are they impacting on educational practices and what are the implications in terms of cost-benefits?
  • Maintaining innovation: what does it take to create future-focused learning? How can innovation in curriculum delivery be maintained in a climate of economic restraint?
  • How we can harness the power of partnerships and new ways of working to sustain innovation?  What are the structures and processes that can support this at institutional level and the barriers, enablers and critical success factors that contribute to maintaining successful long-term partnerships?
  • How we can use collaborative technology to enhance and shape an educational future that is effective and financially achievable?


Trinity Building Capacity Project

The Trinity Building Capacity Wales Project (undertaken in partnership with UWL) is a JISC funded project focussing on the greater embedding of technology enhanced learning within the institution under the Building capacity program which will “enhance the application of JISC outputs and outcomes in the Higher Education Sector. The programme will work with senior change agents in HEIs (Pro Vice-Chancellors or equivalent) to create senior management led change in a number of key strategic concerns that are facing that institution”.

In addition to reporting on the project in depth as it progresses over the coming months, other blog posts and pages will highlight:

  • Conferences, events and activities within the sector related to technology enhanced learning
  • JISC Projects of specific relevance to the needs of the institution
  • Research Projects and Papers published by institution staff and sector colleagues
  • New software and resources that may be of interest to teaching and support staff – free and/or open source whenever possible
  • Developments in social media with reference to how they impact upon education generally and to the university specifically where appropriate
