Bridging the Divide workshop

Not an event about the digital divide between digital haves and have nots in the wider world, but a JISC consultation workshop that will examine the exploitation of ICT in lifelong learning and the seamless service that JISC and its partners are aiming to achieve, particularly in the following key areas: connectivity, data transfer and student and staff information skills.

Presentations and discussion groups will explore:
* joining up the education sector through the consolidation of JANET as a unified network across all education sectors
* creating a seamless environment for data transfer between
* identifying a set of transferable information skills for students and staff that will support easy transfer of skills and offer a common framework for student engagement with learning and administrative systems.

The aims of the consultation workshops are to provide an update on the status of current developments in these areas and gain feed back from participants to help inform the future work of the JISC. Participants will therefore be expected to play a full part in the discussions during the day and make recommendations to JISC and other organisations involved in providing advice and guidance to institutions.

This is the first of two such workshops, the other being on 30 April 2004 at One Great George Street, London

Date: 26 April, 2004
Venue: The Orange Studio, Birmingham
