Innovate, Create, Inspire E-Learning Conference 2013: Exhibitor Guide #inspire13 www.jiscrsc.ac.uk/YH


Introduction Jisc Regional Support Centres work with more than 2,000 UK learning providers helping them to improve performance and efficiency through the use of technology.   The Jisc Regional Support Centre for Yorkshire & Humber is publicly funded to stimulate and support innovation in the post-16 learning sector throughout the Yorkshire & Humber region. Having previously worked to ensure practitioners had the skillset to use technology in learning, it now works with principals, heads of service and other senior and middle managers to advise FE Colleges, HE Colleges, Specialist Colleges, Local Authority Adult Community Learning Providers and government funded Work Based Learning Providers to inform strategies, both corporate and pedagogical, around the subject of technology in learning.

We have run an annual conference each year since our inception in 2000. The conference brings together senior management and practitioners to disseminate best practice across the region as well as providing a collaborative networking event, stimulating ideas and focus for innovative education approaches in the region. The conferences, which are always popular, have followed progressive themes and models of delivery over the years, ensuring that they are always innovative and often cutting edge.
