European Workshop for Research-led Teaching and Resource Sharing
Monday, May 28, 2012 at 2:00 PM - Tuesday, May 29, 2012 at 1:00 PM (BST)
The workshop for Research-led Teaching and Resource Sharing is jointly organised by the European Network for co-ordination of policies and programmes on e-Infrastructures (e-InfraNet) and the National Digital Learning Resouces (NDLR) service.
The workshop aims to bring together representatives from the European and wider teaching and research repository and data infrastructure communities for the purpose of demonstrating the feasibility and potential benefits of linking Open research and teaching repositories within Europe.
The information and data infrastructure in Europe and across the globe has developed to the point where the synergies between teaching and research can be exploited to deliver tangible benefits to both academic staff and students.
This workshop will demonstrate to delegates that the infrastructure to support Trans-European integration of national learning resources and to leverage the research repository infrastructure to support research-led teaching accross the community is already substantially in place. It only requires a relatively small additional coordinated effort to make the entire infrastructure interoperable.
The target audience for this event is representative of the research and higher education communities paying particular attention to the following groups:
- Academics who are engaged or have an active interest in, the Open agenda and the potential benefits for research, teaching and learning and scholarship
- Research managers, Policy advisors, Chief Information Officers (CIO) and Library Directors in higher education and research institutions
- Individuals involved in national research and teaching repositories
- Representatives from countries in the developmental stage of their teaching and research repository infrastructure
The workshop will be organised to facilitate intensive feedback from attendees in the form of structured break-out sessions. By the end of this event it is hoped to identify a consortium of participants who are willing to collaborate on forging linkages with a view to progressing recomendations.
