UKOLN's annual Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW 2013) event
will be held at the University of Bath on 26-28 June 2013.

scope of the event has broadened in light of the importance of Web
technologies across a wide range of institutional activities. The event

Massive Online Considerations) and research activities (Turning our
Attention to Supporting Research)

Education: The Business & Policy Case for OER by Cable Green, Director
of Global learning at Creative Commons and one on Mozilla, Open Badges
and a Learning Standard for Web Literacy by Doug Belshaw, Mozilla
o The Changing Technical Landscape (talks by Martin Hamilton on The
Inside-Out University and Paul Walk on Working With Developers)
o The User Experience (talks by Jonathan Hassell, editor of the BS8878
code of practice for Web accessibility and by David Cornforth on Jisc
infoNet's experiences in Adapting to Responsive Web Design

Ranjit Sidhu who will ask "9am, 16th August, 2012: "What the fcuk just
o Institutional Case Studies from the Universities of Bath and Bolton.
o Two concluding talks which will seek answers to the question What Does
