Feedback on the event

The feedback survey has now closed – thanks to those of you that responded. Some of the comments received are below:

“Excellent for the plenary sessions & opportunities to network… parallel sessions could have been more facilitated discussion & less presentation (at least in the ones I attended) – also seemed to be geared towards Learning/Teaching/Library agenda & not so much business/admin/management.”

“I think one of the things that was acheived was building a community around the innovation activities supported by JISC. “

“There was a good balance of timed sessions and more flexible time just to talk to people.”

“Excellent mix of workshops with a variety of formats, thoughtful and informative plenary presenations and a stimulating mix of people attending.”

“I found it stimulating and interesting, and got to talk to a wide variety of people about a wide variety of topics. Not all the sessions were successful (for me), and I enjoyed and felt I got more out of the more interactive sessions, than the more ‘chalk and talk’ sessions. In particular I felt that the Wednesday schedule was less successful with too many ‘presentations’ compared to discussion. But overall very enjoyable and useful.”

“It was for specialists, but that meant you could get right into the interesting stuff without lots of general introductions; inputs/responses tended to be well-informed, and so on.”

“Compared with other academic venues, Keele fell down on things like power supply for laptops in meeting rooms, wireless connectivity, poor mobile reception, flexibility of meeting room space for smaller discussion groups etc.”¬†

“Just strange – Salmon and pineapple skewers with peanut sauce?”

“I used the breaks for coffee and lunch to network and that’s what I found most useful. Not sure if others would but my gut feeling is that leaving unstructured time for groups or individuals to meet up is the most useful way of getting networking and ideas sharing going.”
