Amplified events, seminars, conferences What? Why? How?

A session at JISC Conference 2011

  • Paul Shabajee

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

3:00pm to 4:00pm

All institutions are involved in providing events, ranging from international conferences through to smaller and more informal seminars and workshops. But in today's economic environment the costs of participating in such events may lead to concerns over their sustainability. 'Amplified events' provide an approach which enhances the advantages provided by traditional face-to-face events by exploiting networked technologies to widen participation to remote participants and 'time-shifting' events.

This session will review a variety of approaches which have been taken at a number of national, international and regional events. The session will explore the reasons for such approaches, address possible concerns and outline various business models, policies and emerging technologies which can be used to maximise the benefits of amplified events.
