    • The Web is Important!
    • The Web is Important!
      • Remit to:
        • “ consider impact of newest technologies (social networking & mobile devices) on behaviour & attitudes of students coming up to & just entered higher education & issues this poses”
      • Recommendations:
        • JISC continues to develop a research and support programme into the use of Web 2.0 for all aspects of university business
        • JISC works with the HE funding bodies and Universities UK to explore issues and practice in the development of new business models that exploit Web 2.0 technologies
    • The Web is Important!
      • Drivers:
        • “ The forces now confronting higher education have been called 'a perfect storm’. They are serious challenges. [HEIs] can no longer depend on ever-increasing allocation of funds”
        • “ This seminar feels a bit like sitting with a group of record industry executives in 1999 ”
      • Conclusions:
        • Universities need to respond by reaching out – they are becoming ’edgeless’
        • A renewed commitment to openness
        • Experimentation and investment
        • New tools to support teaching
    • The Perfect Storm
      • How will your institution respond to 20%(!) cuts?
        • Be innovative
        • Focus on core services, ditch others
        • Do the same as now only less
      Factors: Economics; environment; student expectations; Social Web / Web 2.0
    • We Are Important
      • Some questions to reflect on?
        • Who is best placed to implement the reports’ recommendations?
        • Who has a better understanding of the risks and challenges?
        • Who can regard the reports as providing opportunities for their profession, department and institution?
    • Opportunities at IWMW 2009
      • IWMW 2009 provides:
        • An opportunity to experiment
        • An opportunity for risk-taking
        • An opportunity for networking
      • Make the most of these opportunities!
    • Revisiting Our Innovations
      • We aim to treat the remote audience for the plenary talks as first class citizens
    • Revisiting Our Innovations
