Talis Insight 2015 15 - 16 April, the ICC Birmingham

Talis Insight 2015 is a free, two-day event that will bring together Library and Learning Technology professionals working in Higher Education. Join Talis and your peers to discuss and explore how technology is enhancing teaching and learning.

As an attendee, you will:

  • Network and swap success stories with like minded professionals
  • Hear from leading speakers in your sector
  • Take part in practical workshops
  • Discover best practice ways to improve your institution’s performance

We’ll look at how technology continues to blur boundaries, and why today’s students expect a seamless learning experience. Plus we’ll examine the digital blend of lectures, teaching materials and library learning resources that’s driving changes across the sector.

And we’ll see how different teams now work together more closely, to deliver consistent technology solutions for academics and students. So the event should interest Technology Enhanced Learning, Learning Technology, and Library team leaders.


We are excited to announce that David White, Sheila MacNeill and Prof. Mark Stubbs are joining us to speak at Talis Insight 2015! We will be announcing more speakers in the coming weeks.
