Thanks largely (again) to the efforts of our event amplifier Kirsty Pitkin, and the hard work of our workshop 3 reviewers, we’re pleased to announce that all the resources from last week’s DREaM project workshop held at the Craighouse campus of Edinburgh Napier University are now available online.
From here you can link through to each of the session presentations:
- Dr Harry Woodroof’s session on horizon scanning: includes session slides, a recording of the presentation, and a session summary.
- Dr Phil Turner’s session on repertory grids: includes session slides, a recording of the presentation, and a session summary.
- Kevin Swingler’s session on data mining: includes session slides, a video of the presentation, and a session summary.
- Workshop exercise on links between research and impact set up by Hazel Hall as an exercise largely led by the delegates themselves: includes session summary, workshop task resources, video output from the conclusion of the workshop task.
We have also uploaded the video of delegate presentations in the unconference half hour. This includes contributions from:
- Aislinn Conway
- Anthony McKeown
- Alison Brettle
- Ella Taylor-Smith
- Rossitza Atanassova
- Allan Parsons
The workshop 3 reviews page provides links to delegate reviews of the event. Listed with these are Hazel Hall’s analysis of the workshop 3 evaluation forms. The CoverItLive archive of the event also gives a good flavour of the online conversations related to the event, as do our event amplifier Kirsty Pitkin’s photographs taken on the day.
If you would like to set up or join an online discussion based around any of the issues covered in this workshop, please feel free to do so with other DREaM network members in the DREaM online community. DREaM online community membership is open to anyone with an interest in library and information science research: you do not have to have attended a DREaM project event to join.
The next DREaM event is the conference at the British Library on 9th July. Expert speakers and panelists at the event include Jo Alcock, Dr Carla Basili, Dr Louise Cooke, Professor Hazel Hall, Annie Mauger, Professor Charles Oppenheim and Professor Carol Tenopir. Best-selling author, broadcaster, medical doctor and academic Dr Ben Goldacre will deliver the closing keynote paper, as well as make the presentation to the winner of the Library and Information Science Practitioner Researcher Excellence Award. Throughout the day there will be time for networking, and an opportunity for delegates to contribute to a one minute madness session just before lunch. The conference fee is just £95 (inclusive, including all refreshments) and a number of travel bursaries are available. To book your place, please go to the DREaM conference registration page.
