The Service Design in Government 2019 conference took place in Edinburgh last week, with three students from our university taking the opportunity to volunteer and get some great insight and experience from experts in the field.
Last week I attended ContentEd – a two-day conference dedicated to content strategy in higher education. In this post, I recap the highlights and lessons learned from this inspiring and educating conference.
Once again, we’re lucky to have a world-class user experience conference happening on our doorstep down at Dynamic Earth in central Edinburgh. We’ve been long-time advocates and once again, members of our team will be attending and sharing their thoughts.
The University Website team had the honour to be invited to the inaugural Thunder Day event, organised by the Hubert Burda publishing company in Hamburg, Germany. The main theme of the day was how open collaboration can help when delivering digital content through the web.
Just before leaving for my summer holidays, I had the great chance to travel to Canterbury and the University of Kent, where the annual Institutional Web Managers Workshop (IWMW for short) was hosted. This was the 21st year for the conference, which underlined the success of this long-standing networking and collaboration opportunity.
I’ve been accepted as a contributor at this year’s UX Scotland conference, happening at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh from 7 to 9 June 2017.
This year’s UX Scotland happened 8-10 June. It was my 4th time attending, and this year I focused mainly on sessions around facilitation and management. As ever there were some real highlights for me, including a full day training session with Kim Goodwin.
Once again we’re contributing to the annual UK Higher Education web managers conference, IWMW. It’s a great opportunity to learn from and network with colleagues in our sector, and we’re encouraging staff here in Edinburgh to join us at Liverpool John Moores University, 21-23 June.
Drupalcamp Scotland – the annual regional conference for developers and users of the Drupal CMS platform – is being hosted this year at the University of Edinburgh, with members of the University Website Programme contributing presentations on EdWeb and agile usability.
In early June, the UX Scotland conference was held for the third time in Edinburgh. I was there once again, this time joined by a newer member of the LTW team – Jonah McLachlan. In this post we highlight what for us were the best sessions, and link to some of the resources now available.
