In September a call for submissions appeared on the SEDA list that was a little different. To quote Kieran Fenby-Hulse The Doctoral College and Centre for Research Capability and Development will be holding a one day Conference happening on Friday 19th January 2018.

It’s been over a month of events and workshops. I’m trying to reflect on all of the things that have happened; delivering a course in Manchester the morning after the tragic event of 22nd May, talking about Rhubarb as a metaphor for digital strategy in Southampton and about Digital Leadership in an age of supercomplexity […] Read more
Recently we held a really fun day of internal talks around a variety of issues. I chose to build on the metaphor that Amber Thomas first suggested around “cats and dead birds”. I have used this before in workshops, but I wanted to build on it, and with limited time available (max 10 minutes) this […] Read more
Digital Pedagogy Lab : Prince Edward Island : Third Reflections So the reflections keep coming, and the connections get stronger as we continue to reflect in the open. There have been some great blog posts from fellow #DigPed delegates in the last few days and maybe at some point we should write a collective piece […] Read more

We all have experience of change initiatives at one level or another. After being involved in more than 200 change projects across the higher education sector, and working with senior staff at more than 60 universities, this keynote was trying to communicate some general principles around leading change. A lot of people helped me in […] Read more
UXLibs II was my first time engaging with this particular library audience. From the outset (as far back as being asked to do the closing keynote) I got the impression it was going to be a different kind of event. But I wasn’t prepared for the sheer level of enthusiasm and engagement with everything about […] Read more
Last week I was preparing my keynote for the second UXLibs conference in Manchester, in June. The UXLibs approach is to use ethnographic, usability and human-centred design research approaches to gather invaluable behavioural and attitudinal user information, to inform the work of libraries and beyond. It’s a privilege to be invited to speak to this […] Read more
