Supporting and Enabling External Engagement
09:30 - 16:15 Friday 1 October 2010
Lakeside Centre,Aston University
You and your colleagues are invited to attend a FREE one-day conference exploring the key issues raised during workshops, conference sessions and consultations held over the past 18 months as part of the JISC-funded project Business and Community Engagement: Awareness and Education for the wider JISC Audience.
Over 75 UK HE and FE institutions and organisations were represented during these activities and the event audiences were drawn from staff at all levels from within library and IT services - as well as from across the whole range of management and administrative functions.
The conference will include a variety of sessions exploring current, practical resources and advice in the following areas:
* Information resource management: Licensing and access for external partners
* Network and systems: Policy and practice for development, management and access
* Relationship management - how does it benefit us?: People, processes and opportunities
* Engaging with internal strategy: Communication, recognition and buy-in
* Professional development and skills for engagement: Recognised development of our capacity
You will also hear about activities taking place within amongst others, JISC Collections, UCISA and JANET - some of which have been informed by the outcomes emerging from this project - as well as identify opportunities for you to participate and benefit early from some of that work.
You can find out more about the project background, the resources it has produces and the activities undertaken at bceawareness.jiscinvolve.org
To secure your place on the event, complete a booking form from: www.netskills.ac.uk/workshop/4453
Please forward this onto colleagues who may also benefit from attending.
We look forward to seeing you in Birmingham on 1st October.
