UKOLN's annual Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW 2013) event will be held at the University of Bath on 26-28 June 2013.
Although initially targetted at members of institutional Web teams, the scope of the event has broadened in light of the importance of Web technologies across a wide range of institutional activities. The event includes plenary talks on:
o The role of the web in supporting teaching and learning (Et tu MOOC? Massive Online Considerations) and research activities (Turning our Attention to Supporting Research)
o The opportunities provided by open practices (a talk on Open Education: The Business & Policy Case for OER by Cable Green, Director of Global learning at Creative Commons and one on Mozilla, Open Badges and a Learning Standard for Web Literacy by Doug Belshaw, Mozilla Foundation)
o The Changing Technical Landscape (talks by Martin Hamilton on The Inside-Out University and Paul Walk on Working With Developers)
o The User Experience (talks by Jonathan Hassell, editor of the BS8878 code of practice for Web accessibility and by David Cornforth on Jisc infoNet's experiences in Adapting to Responsive Web Design
o Views from outside the commercial sector, including Paul Boag who will suggest that "Institutional Culture Is Crippling Your Web Strategy!" and Ranjit Sidhu who will ask "9am, 16th August, 2012: "What the fcuk just happened then?"".
o Institutional Case Studies from the Universities of Bath and Bolton.
o Two concluding talks which will seek answers to the question What Does The Future Hold?
In addition to these plenary talks there are also 20 workshop sessions lasting for 90 minutes which provide an opportunity for participants to address topics of interest in more depth.
