We are excited to announce the agenda for Talis Insight Europe 2016. To see the sessions details and our current speaker lineup, visit our event website.
This year we will be hosting more than 30 sessions over the two days for delegates to choose from. We are delighted to be hosting some of the most prominent thought leaders in Higher Education. Paul Feldman (CEO, JISC) and Phil Richards (Chief Innovation Officer, JISC) will take the stage to deliver the keynote session on day one. Nick Bevan (Pro Vice-Chancellor and Director of Library and Student Support) will share why he feels ‘The less we talk about libraries the better’.
We are bringing back the eTextbooks discussion panel again this year, on popular demand. Caren Milloy will host a panel of representatives from universities and publishers, to examine the provision of eTextbooks to provide free access to core readings for students.
Liz Jolly (Chair of SCONUL) will be discussing the impact of TEF on libraries in Higher Education on Day Two. And we are delighted to host Martin Hamilton (Futurist, JISC) to deliver the closing keynote at the end of day two.
Our CEO Dave Errington will deliver the Talis Keynote on day one in the afternoon. If you are already using Talis Aspire, you will not want to miss our update from Keji Adedeji (Product Manager) on the morning of day two.
Other sessions over the two days are a combination of topics contributed by members of the Talis Aspire User Group and further product and service updates from Talis. And more importantly, a great networking opportunity with your peers from other institutions.
We are also delighted to be hosting the Talis Awards Dinner on the evening of 20th April. We hope you can join us, and be a part of the evening festivities. Don’t forget to indicate your attendance when you complete the registration form.
