About the Event
The HE and FE Sectors continue to operate in what is undoubtedly one of the most challenging periods of sustained change in their histories. As a result, the need to seek out best practice from both within and outside our sector in order to ensure we have the agility and creativity needed to meet the challenges our institutions face, has never been greater.
Building on the success of ucisa 2019, we are therefore pleased to announce that the theme for ucisa 2020 will be “Inside Out, Outside In” – focusing on inspiring and enabling outstanding leadership in IT.
The conference will explore best practice themes from the Inside Out by looking at sector exemplars to provide guidance and inspiration by exploring how best to develop, and support our existing workforce to improve capacity, effectiveness and deliver an excellent student experience. The Outside In conference strand will seek out best practice from organisations and exemplars from outside the sector, focusing on how technological innovations and strategic & operational models identified can be effective within an educational context, ensuring we remain open/ opening our minds to new ideas and opportunities.
This year we will be bringing the Student Voice to our Leadership Conference with a number of short sessions from students, demonstrating first- hand the transformational impact of higher education.
We will again be hosting the largest supplier exhibition for our sector, building in greater levels of interactivity and more opportunities to get to know some of the exhibitors and suppliers. Perhaps most importantly our Leadership Conference will continue to provide the best possible opportunity for peer to peer interaction, conversation and inspiration with expanded and improved opportunities for you to network with colleagues.
We encourage CIO’s and IT Directors to bring their senior teams along to explore how they might do things differently in a rapidly changing digital world and how they can support and develop the workforce of the future.
