D1: Gathering Interests: Future Technologies and Their Applications D1: Gathering Interests: Future Technologies and Their Applications Presentation Transcript

  • Future Technologies and Their Applications A one-day workshop at ILI 2013 facilitated by Brian Kelly and Tony Hirst Twitter hashtag: #ili2013fut Available under a Creative Commons (CC-BY licence) 1 D1: Predicting Technology Trends: Gathering your Interests
  • What Do You Think Will Be Important? What technologies / technology-related areas do you feel will be important in your area of work?: • In the short-term (in the next two years)? • In the medium term (in two - five years)? 2
  • What Do You Think Will Be Important? Group exercise: • Agree on four (only four!) areas which you feel will be important in the short-term • Agree on four (only four!) areas which you feel will be important in the medium-term Spend ten minutes on this and be prepared to give a brief summary of the areas 3
  • What Do You Think Will Be Important? Collating The Responses Important in the short-term: 4 Area 1 Area 2 Area 3 Area 4 Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5
  • What Do You Think Will Be Important? Collating The Responses Important in the medium term: 5 Area 1 Area 2 Area 3 Area 4 Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5
  • What Do You Think Will Be Important? Collating The Responses Important in the medium term: 6 Area 1 Area 2 Area 3 Area 4 Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5
  • Reaching Consensus Voting on the topics • Now vote on the other groups proposed areas. • Give each proposed area scores of: 3: Felt very likely to be of significant importance to the organisation 2: Likely to have some importance to the organisation 1: May have some importance for the organisation 7
  • Reviewing the Consensus Analysis of the Votes We now have some broad consensus on: • Technological developments which are felt to be importance to the organisation • Some ranking of their level of importance We can now: • Explore some areas of technological developments • Explore ways in which we can see if they may be the new Web or the new Second Life 8
  • About The Process This Delphi process: • Is an established and structured communication technique for interactive forecasting reliant on a selected panel of experts. • Has been adopted by the US-based New Media Consortium (NMC) for the NMC Horizon project centrepiece activity charting the international landscape of emerging technologies initiative as they relate to "teaching, learning , research creative inquiry and information management". • Has been used at events organised by UKOLN and CETIS to predict the potential impact of technology on learning and teaching in the short, medium and long term.9
  • Use of the Delphi Process The group was presented with a number of key trend statements, as identified by the NMC horizon scan activities 2013, an example of which was "Openness; concepts like open content, open date and open resources, along with notions of transparency and easy access to data and information, is becoming a value" and significant challenges such as "Faculty training still does not acknowledge the fact that digital media literacy continues to rise in importance as a key skill in every discipline and profession". Participants were split into smaller groups and posed a series of response questions; Question 1 being "Given the technology trends and challenges just discussed which technologies do you think will have greatest impact on Higher Education (Teaching and Learning from the CETIS 13 expert group) over the next twelve months (near term)? The expert groups were given ten minutes to discuss the question, collectively agree and provide three technologies identified. The technologies identified by the expert groups were listed and presented to the whole group. Each of the smaller working group were given a further five minutes to discuss the other groups suggestions asked to vote for the suggestions, excluding their own. The scores were collated and the three technologies emerging with the highest overall group scores were put forward as the three technologies with potentially greatest impact on teaching and learning in the near term. The process was then repeated for the medium (2-3 years) and long term (3-5 years) questions. In an hour the expert group were able to produce a list of technologies that they considered would have impact on higher Education in the short, medium and long term the results of which were then compared with the NMC Horizon scan findings and other group findings for further discussion and debate. The value of such a process is two-fold; firstly the finding and outputs and secondly as a process by which to instigate discussion and debate around technologies amongst experts.
