The shock of the old: a fresh look at innovation and information

technology in traditional university teaching

This joint ASTER and OxTalent conference on educational technology will be
held on 26 and 27 March in the Computing Laboratory.

The conference will explore the impact of communication and information
technologies on teaching and learning in a traditional setting. Speakers from
around the UK will showcase examples of innovative practice, focusing on the
contextual factors which determine the success or otherwise of using new
technologies in teaching and learning. The conference is an opportunity to find
out about developments in a range of subject areas, and to discuss the
opportunities available for adapting teaching and learning practices and
resources between disciplines.

ASTER (Assisting Small-group Teaching through Electronic Resources,
http://cti-psy.york.ac.uk/aster/) is a research project exploring how
communication and information technologies support seminar, tutorial,
workshop and laboratory-based teaching and learning in higher education. It
is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England through the
Teaching and Learning Technology Programme (phase 3).

OxTalent (Oxford Teaching And Learning supported by New Technology,
http://www.ox.ac.uk/it/groups/oxtalent/) promotes the use of C&IT in
teaching and learning at the University of Oxford.

Attendance costs £40 for one day (£20 for members of Oxford
University), and
£75 for both days (£40 for members of Oxford University).
OxTalent is subsidising places for members of Oxford University. Lunch and
refreshments are included in the price, though accommodation and evening
meals are not.

Further information may be obtained from the conference Web site,
http://www.ox.ac.uk/it/groups/oxtalent/shock/, or from Jenny Newman,

Beyond the museum: working with collections in the digital age

This one-day colloquium, jointly organised by the Humanities Computing Unit
and mda (http://www.mda.org.uk), will be held on Friday, 20 April, in the
debating chamber of the Oxford Union. The format will be a mixture of
presentations, open discussion, and debates. The audience will be encouraged
to participate fully.

Questions to be discussed include the following: Is the new digital age the
answer to the prayers of museums, archives, and libraries? Does it free up
collections allowing unprecedented access facilities for scholars and the
public—or is it all built on a house of cards? Do the new technologies
really offer us anything, or are they sidetracking the holders of the nation's
heritage into areas that really have unproven benefits? Is funding being
diverted away from more needy services? Can the museum, or similar
institution, actually survive in
such a fast-changing culture?

Speakers will include the following: Lynne Brindley, CEO, the British
Professor Lola Young, Project Director for the National Museums and
Archives of Black History and Culture, Middlesex University; John Wilson,
Presenter of BBC Radio 4's Front Row; Mike Houlihan,
CEO, Ulster Museum; and
Dr Christopher Brown, Director, Ashmolean Museum.

Admission charges are as follows: £40 (educational); £100
(commercial); £5 (student/unwaged); £10 (mda members).

Information about the Humanities Computing Unit is available from
http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/humanities/, and about mda at
