JISC Next Generation Technologies in Practice Conference
APT STAIRS project team members Sarah Sherman and Tim Neumann delivered a presentation on the concept behind the project and the skills developed by stakeholders as a result of the project. The JISC Next Generation Technologies in Practice conference was attended by members of the academic sector across the UK in addition to fellow members of the Emerge community. The conference, which took place at Loughborough University, provided a fantastic opportunity for Sarah and Tim to let people know the successes achieved by the project, leading to a number of interested individuals wishing to try out online collaborative tools.
APT STAIRS is an acronym for Appropriate and Practical Technologies for Students, Teachers, Administrators and Researchers.
We are trialling out new web 2:0 technologies across the Bloomsbury colleges, to enhance learning and teaching in further education. We will be working closely with Google Docs in this JISC funded project, until April 2009.
