Thank you!

Aims: The day will focus on three key aspects of change facing our projects:

1. Challenges and tensions

What are the difficulties and tensions facing our project teams? How can we negotiate open educational practices and collaboration within competitive business models? Is it easier to share knowledge externally that internally? What are the sticking points holding back institutional change?

2. Approaches and solutions

What are the fixes and work-arounds? How can different types of community help anchor our progress? Which approaches to sharing and building on knowledge and practice are most effective?

3. Sustaining change and project impacts

How can we ensure change beyond the boundaries of the project and the project lifecycle? How is JISC strategically and practically addressing sustainability issues? What are the best ways to amplify our outputs, findings and successes?

Pre-conference prep:

1. make sure all your team members have their calendars clear for the day!

2. Talk you your support team liason about how your team can best contribute to the day – particularly in terms of the project led slots.

3. Make sure you are good to go with Elluminate – use our sandbox to check your connection and audio, think about a webcam. If appropriate, sign up for Elluminate training the team will be providing for presenters prior to the event: (here)
