Poster for JISC ‘Show and Tell’ event

On 29th January, JISC are hosting a ‘Show and Tell’ event in Birmingham for projects on the Course Data programme and interested parties, including UCAS, HESA, HEFCE, UCISA, Graduate Prospects and many others.  We were asked to create a poster which depicted our progress in one of four key areas (themes).  We chose theme 2, which is all to do with getting institutions ready for better data integration and implementing cross-institutional change.

Our poster is available to view in JISCInfonet’s online collection here, along with those from other participating institutions.  Our thanks go to the University’s Print & Design unit who helped us with the design!

The project manager and I will be attending the Show & Tell event.  We’re looking forward to seeing everyone else’s posters, and will be pleased to answer questions about ours. We’re also hoping to gather some ideas about what others in the sector see as the key achievements of the programme as a whole, which could well be useful in guiding our recommendations in the final report.

Hope to see you there!

Enterprise Architecture modelling bash

Just a notice that we are holding an Enterprise Architecture ‘modelling bash’ here at Sheffield on 3rd September 2012 (one of a pair, the other to be held at UC Falmouth on 30th-31st August).  A registration form is below. We hope that this will be a great opportunity for those who have been working with the Archi tool to work on their models with support, share their output and discuss how they might use them in their institutions – the day will be centred around hands-on modelling experiences.  There will also be a chance to hear a couple of short presentations from institutions who have used EA, and to ask questions. Wilbert Kraan, who was involved in the creation and development of the Archi tool, will be joining us too.

Welcome to SCRIBE!  This blog was set up to share the University of Sheffield’s experiences of participating in the JISC course data project.  We hope to be able to discuss our progress, gain feedback, and connect with staff at other institutions who are interested in course data processes, whether or not they are part of the JISC programme.
