Today I am at the JISC Conference in Birmingham.
This is the annual JISC bash where JISC talks up what they have done over the previous year, where they have been and where they intend to go.
Unlike a lot of conferences where there are calls for papers and workshops, this doesn’t happen at the JISC conference. It is in the main JISC talking about JISC.
I can’t remember what I signed up for in terms of presentations, but I suspect that there will be a lot of talk and a lot less interaction and engagement.
The main reason I go to the JISC Conference is that it is a great opportunity to network and meet fellow e-learning people from across the country.
I am pretty sure that’s why a lot of people go there too.
