After being based in and around Russell Square for the last 5 years during my time at ULCC, yesterday I found myself back in familiar surroundings for the Intellect Education Group seminar, which have their offices directly on Russell Square.
With speakers including Lynne Sedgmore (157 Group), Clive Hill (Birmingham Metropolitan and Matthew Dean (AOC), the morning promised to be an informative 'must-attend' session, and I was not wrong.
Run under Chatham House rules, which means I can't really give a blow by blow record of some of the great content delivered during the session, I thought it would still be useful to share some of the core points raised during the seminar.
The core focus of the seminar looked to address the use of technology in FE, what the key challenges are and how suppliers can best assist institutions meet their objectives.
Focusing on the use of tech and the key challenges, in particular, the core points covered during the session included the following:
For a 2 hour event, there was an abundance of great content which, may not come across as well in this generic synopsis of the core points covered. If you get a chance to attend an Intellect event in the future, I highly recommend it.
Just as a closing request, there were a number of opportunities and challenges raised during the session that would be great to get your thoughts on. I will then share these back with the folks at Intellect and the wider community.
Your thoughts on the above would be greatly appreciated (please leave your comments below).
Thanks in advance,
