Monday I was working at home and spent some time preparing for my talk on the Intelligent Campus which I am delivering at Digifest.
I spent two days in Birmingham at the annual Jisc Digital Festival, Digifest. On the first day I delivered a one hour thought leadership session on the intelligent campus.
There were over a hundred people in the room and I enjoyed talking about the intelligent campus, defining what it means, how it could work, the potential for universities and colleges.
The second day of Digifest gave me a chance to participate in a range of sessions, though I really did enjoy the panel session on the listening to teachers report run by Lawrie Phipps and Donna Lanclos.
I had a fair few calls about future events and my role within those events.
Towards the end of the week I was ensuring that all the logistical details of the Senior TEL working group meeting were completed. In a new directorate meant that not everything was done in the same way as was done in my previous role. Some of the processes though were the same. I also took the time to doing some background reading for the meeting.
My top tweet this week was this one.
I hate the phrase “digital detox” as it implies that digital is toxic by default. #DigiFest19 pic.twitter.com/XMamfblYLL
