The Next Generation Technologies in Practice conference on 10th and 11th March will be highlighting a range of major developments in multimedia social technologies, social networking and communities, virtual worlds, and next generation skills enabled by the JISC Users and Innovation programme, and explore how these developments can be actively transferred into real learning, teaching and research practice and communications. Come along to find out more - and take part in hands-on benefits realisation workshops on day one, and showcase and debate on day two.
Last year's conference focussed on user needs and applying practice;this year's conference moves on a stage further to the theme of 'Evaluation, impact and effect' - how do we get the most out of these developments, and where next?
A selection of comments from last year's attendees about the best parts of the event:
"The opportunity to immerse myself in the ideas .... Relevant and relaxed .... an excellent and comfortable environment for meeting new people and exchanging ideas.... learning from others ... the networking opportunities....  it was easy to network and people were very friendly and eager to share..."*
The event is free, places are limited and, so sign up today! Subject Centre staff are welcome for either or both days. For further information and to book your place, please go to: http://www.jisc.ac.uk/events/2009/03/ngtip  .
