UKOLN Institutional Web Management Workshop 2004:
Transforming The Organisation

About The Workshop

The Institutional Web Management Workshop series are organised by UK Web Focus and UKOLN in order to support members of institutional Web management teams within the UK Higher and Further Educational communities.

This year's Institutional Web Management Workshop took place at the University of Birmingham on 27-29th July 2004. The theme of the workshop, the eighth in the series, was Transforming The Organisation. The talks, parallel sessions and discussion groups addressed the issues of how the Web may be transforming our institutions and how our institutions' working practices and organisational structures may need to be transformed in order to make best use of the Web. In addition many of the more mainstream issues facing Web managers were addressed.

The event provided an opportunity for those involved in the provision of large-scale institutional Web services to hear about institutional case studies, national initiatives and emerging technologies and to actively participate in a number of parallel sessions.
