Discussion Group A1: Supporting The Needs of the User

This page provides access to the information for the discussion groups at the UKOLN workshop on Initiatives & Innovation: Managing Disruptive Technologies held at Austin Court, Birmingham on Friday 3rd November 2006.

About The Discussion Groups

Following the two sets of plenary talks, workshop delegates will attend discussion groups which will provide an opportunity for group discussions. Since a WiFi network is available at the venue we will encourage the discussion groups to make use of a Wiki to keep a record of the group discussions and any recommendations which may be made.

Discussion Groups (morning): User Requirements For Wikis

The first discussion group will take place after two plenary talks which will illustrate how Wikis are being used to support teaching and learning and in a research context.

Please appoint a chair and a reporter (and possibly a note-taker). A summary of your discussions should be kept on the Wiki which is available below. The notes on the Wiki should form the basis of the report back.


Two sets of issues are given below. You can chose whether to address one of the issues, both of them or possibly split your group into two.

Issue 1

Issue 2
