Might be of interest to some of you, a blog post I wrote for the LSE Impact Blog on the weird and wonderful world of academic Twitter
Academic Twitter is more than just sharing research articles and live-tweeting at conferences. Andy Tattersall gives an overview of the humorous accounts that aim to pull back the curtain on the Iv…

I was asked to deliver two Bite Size sessions, well it's been a while, on Google Apps. The first one was delivered for the Faculty of Medicine and was really well attended by about 60 staff and PGRs. Then I delivered the same...

I came across this tool whilst in London last week. It's called the Academic Survival Kit and was developed by the University of Minnesota Library and helps students manage their assignments and work. I think it's mostly aimed at undergrads, but could be useful for postrad and helps them structure and plan their time better. You just put a start and end date in and it helps prompt students through the essay process and creates them a schedule to work to.
The University of Staffordshire have created their own

ASK breaks the whole assigment task - which can seem daunting to students making the transition to HE - into smaller, more manageable steps and helps students with their planning and time management. It also directs them to sources of research information which they may not be aware of and should therefore help improve the quality of their research and final assignment work.

Anyone else seen this on Google Drive? Cloud HQ - what is the difference between what we do now and this?

Call for Papers - the Social Media Learning in for Higher Education Conference 2016 is back #SocMedHE16

I know a few of us attended and spoke last year and found it quite a good conference - and on our doorstep :-)

The Empowered Learner?

Friday 16th December 2016 at Sheffield Hallam University, UK

#SocMedHE16: The Empowered Learner? will build upon #SocMedHE15’s Finding our social identity theme where we established our common interest in developing our understanding of social media for learning in HE.

This year we ask questions: are we empowering students by adopting and adapting social, open, mobile and networked learning and media? How critically are we shaping the opportunity that is emerging? How sure are we that the social, open and networked space, with all of the autonomy it suggests, is good for our students?

The conference will reflect a variety of positions including the student view of empowerment, the academic and teaching view, and the perspectives of support staff and strategic managers. We are particularly keen to receive proposals from students, and have an incentive to encourage this.

Please refer to the conference site for further information about the theme and for a selection of indicative topics.

Proposals should be based on evidence and experience of academic, or strategic practice; in any of the following formats:

· Short papers
· Workshops
· Thunderstorm presentations
· Posters

Please refer to the conference site for further information about the conference formats.

Accepted submissions will be eligible for writing up and inclusion in the #SocMedHE16 conference proceedings.

Accepted presenters will be encouraged to develop an artefact with creative commons licensing to accompany their submission, these will be made openly available during and beyond the event.

Submission deadline: Midday Monday 16th May 2016

To submit, complete the form on the conference site SocMedHE16­_submissionform16 you will need a title, 50 word abstract and 500 word summary and email it to

Does anyone know of any very small computer labs (no more than 12 pcs) that are bookable for writing clubs - preferably close to Regent Court, just off West Street.

As much as I'd love to promote the learning lab to be used, it is really intended as a space  for enhancing teaching. I'm not sure this really fits that bill
