Inside Out - Eduserv Foundation Symposium 2008
I'm very pleased to announce that this year's Eduserv Foundation Symposium, Inside Out: What do current Web trends tell us about the future of ICT provision for learners and researchers?, will be held on Thursday May 8th at the British Library in London.
Intended as an opportunity to think about how the Web (and in particular Web 2.0) is disrupting the delivery and use of ICT for both learning and research within the education sector, the day will bring together seven different viewpoints covering educational institutions, the mainstream media and academic publishing.
The list of speakers is as follows:
- Larry Johnson, New Media Consortium (US)
- Bobbie Johnson, Guardian (UK)
- Jem Stone, BBC (UK)
- Chris Adie, University of Edinburgh (UK)
- David Harrison, UCISA / University of Cardiff (UK)
- Gráinne Conole, Open University (UK)
- Geoffrey Bilder, CrossRef (UK)
The breadth and depth here is intentional - we didn't want a day that was just the education community talking to itself. Rather we wanted to bring together a mix of viewpoints, trying to understand how recent Web trends impact on service delivery both inside and outside the sector. I'm really pleased with the line up and am looking forward to an informative and enlightening day.
