Jisc’s head of innovation Sarah Porter will today (Friday 3 June) lead an online Guardian debate about the future of the internet in academia.
Sarah is one of ten panellists leading the discussion about how higher education could better embrace the web and what that transformation would look like.
Sarah said: “Jisc’s active research in universities shows that not only has the internet changed the way people conduct their research, use university libraries, teach and administer services – but that it’s also benefitting the impact that institutions have outside their own campuses.
“I’ll be really interested to see in this debate whether we can come to some conclusions about changes that need to happen in universities to make even better use of the internet.”
All comments are welcome on the Guardian higher education network blog between 1-4pm.
To stimulate the debate, Guardian journalist Eliza Anyangwe posed some questions: “Are universities only touching the tip of the iceberg of possibilities the web offers in teaching and research? And what about in HE management and administration; how is the web changing service provision here? Is it being used enough?”
