About the Event
Maintaining and adapting positive learnings for a post-COVID environment
One of the highlights of our Leadership Conference planned for March was that we were to be joined by a senior international delegation from Australia. Facilitated by our International Sponsor, TechnologyOne, the delegation members, were to join colleagues from UK institutions for an interactive panel session.
We are therefore delighted to announce that we are now able to offer a virtual welcome to our antipodean guests at 12:00-13:00 BST on 29th July. Alongside their UK peers, they will discuss digital strategies that can be employed to meet the challenges of – and create new opportunities in – areas such as student retention, student interactions and student experience in what promises to be an engaging, insightful and thought-provoking session.
Chaired by Drew Cook – Director of ICT at the University of Lincoln, as well as Chair of the ucisa Board of Trustees – the panellists will be discussing the changing digital strategies needed to direct the learners’ journeys, from the perspective of the staff that support them.
Inherent to their leadership roles within their own institutions, we look forward to hearing strategic perspectives from the following panellists:
• Emma Woodcock, CIO, York St John University
• Keith Adams, Finance Systems Manager, London School of Economics and Political Science
• Sean Elwick, CIO, Swinburne University of Technology
• Michelle Gillespie, Head of Student Services, Swinburne University of Technology
• Simon Wilkinson, Director of Student Experience (HiQ), Queensland University of Technology
Undoubtedly of interest to all ucisa members, this session will particularly appeal to senior IT staff and members interested in longer-term, strategic solutions to contemporary business challenges.
Many thanks to our International Sponsors TechnologyOne, for their ongoing support in facilitating this exciting international event for the ucisa community.
