After lunch, Sarah Holyfield and Christina Smart introduced a discussion session called
Mind the Gap. Delegates were asked to divide themselves into teachers and technologists. They
were given an imaginary scenario about an institution preparing its 5 year e-learning strategy,
and each group was asked to prepare a presentation. The two groups took it in turns to discuss their
question for 20 minutes, whilst the other group listened, and the SIG coordinators made notes for the
Powerpoint presentation slides below.

their worlds. This session will explore this issue. The work of the JISC e-Learning Programme in
this area will be introduced.
