I’ve had a week’s holiday and tomorrow I’m heading to Aberystwyth partly as a holiday but also to give another talk about LASSIE. This time I’ll be talking to distance learning students at the Department of Information Studies at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth (my old uni!) as part of their week long study school. I’m planning on talking about the project, but certainly it will be interesting to hear from them about the impact they think that web 2.0 technologies might have on the way they study (if any!) I know they have experimented with using Facebook for the students (my talk is a Facebook event!) but I wonder what the students really think of this? And according to the confirmed guests on Facebook I’m going to be speaking to an audience of 9! (which I hope is not the case)
I see that my talk from the August ALISS event is now on the ALISS website. Next talk after this week’s is going to be at the University of Oxford on the 24th September. I’ll be talking to library staff at their staff development day. Apologies for the minimal posting recently, once I’m back at work next week things will improve!
