Hi +Amanda Rachelle Warren, sorry for posting the link previously. As mentioned, this is the first time I've written a poem since school so I'm after any feedback at all. I feel like it's a good stab at a first draft, but let's see what people think. It's called "A healer's true form will find you in time".

At times our world
can seem so unfair.
Broken hearts, a last breath —
manifests in despair.

Its grip, unyielding,
pulls you deeper below.
Keep it close to your chest,
or release and let go.

Each to their own
in both remedy and rhyme.
A healer’s true form
will find you in time.

Not always complete
but often stronger in mind.
We’re all human, remember,
don’t assume and be kind.

+Alice Wagner thanks for your comment! Already learning the importance of detail, and perhaps thinking that I should have read through my poem a few times (maybe out loud) before submitting although it was always intended as a first draft.

I think I'll keep "remedy" in the third stanza as my focus was on the healing process. The following two lines (and the title) are interesting though because I don't really fully understand what I myself mean by them. They just seemed to resonate with me. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Got an idea that would improve student life using technology? You could receive £5,000 from Jisc to develop it this summer.

More info at http://www.jisc.ac.uk/student-innovation. Closing date for votes and applications is 30 May. #edtech

In this webinar the audience will hear from 2 different institutions (Staffordshire University; University of Bolton) and the way in which they have practically applied EA to solve real business problems.

You're very welcome! I'm hoping to push for something around benefits (will get around to posting something to the list soon) and governance in future webinars.

For anyone that missed the event, outputs are available here: http://emergingpractices.jiscinvolve.org/wp/webinar-applying-ea/

Great summary!
 
Leadership Compared to Management

"By focusing attention on a vision, the leader operates on the emotional and spiritual resources of the organization, on its values, commitment, and aspirations. The manager, by contrast, operates on the physical resources of the organization, on its capital, human skills, raw materials, and technology."  ~James M. Strock

The service I work for is changing the way it delivers workshops focusing more on helping organisations across UK HE, FE and Skills to solve real issues. Find out more from the website if you're interested.

Hi Everyone, I must confess that I'm not an Enterprise Architect but have been working with UK Higher Education, Further Education and Skills to collate and share knowledge around the application of EA.

Where relevant I'll attempt to contribute, and share outputs relevant to the community. Our most recent output can be found from the link below, although we'll be making a few updates in the new year.

I hope this is the right category in which to post, still getting used to this on my mobile!!

I guess I can vouch for Andrew :) - oh, and for the view that senior management focus in the UK is a tough sell set in the context of limited resources.

If you're not aware of his work, Doug Belshaw has been investigating Digital Literacy for quite some time. Worth checking out his blog.
