CETIS sessions at JISC conference

Registration for this year’s JISC Conference on the 14th and 15th of March in Liverpool is now open. This year JISC CETIS is running two sessions. Wilbert Kraan and Phil Beauvoir will be Introducing Archi in a demonstration session on the evening of the 14th. Wilbert and Phil will introduce the Archi modelling tool and describe how it can be used to help understand organisational enterprise architecture.

On the 15th Paul Hollins and Wilbert Kraan are hosting a one hour symposium on The benefits of open standards. This session builds our briefing paper Assessing the Business Case for Standards highlighting the key roles standards can play in institutional IT strategies. There will be presentations from Patrick O’Reilly from the University of Bolton on the standards underpinning a move from WebCT to Moodle, and Gary Wills from the University of Southampton on developing assessment systems based on QTI.

We will also be running an exhibition standard with colleagues from the other Innovation Support Centres, UKOLN and OSS Watch, the theme will be supporting innovation. The JISC conference is a great networking opportunity so we hope to catch up with many colleagues there.
