DIVERSE Heads to Dev8D

Here at DIVERSE we’re always looking for new ways to spread the word and get people involved with the work we’ve been carrying out. When the opportunity to take part in Dev8D (a developer conference focused around developing for HE) came up we thought it would be a great opportunity to spread the word about DIVERSE.

Myself, Ben and John took the trip down to London for the 3 day conference at the University of London Union. Whilst there we were not only able to network and learn about other interesting HE projects but we were also able to pitch DIVERSE in one of the ‘lightning talk’ sessions. This allowed us to reach out to other developers from around the country and give them an insight into the work we had been doing. The response was positive and we hope to spread the word even further by attending more conferences in the near future.

As always keep tuned for our lastest updates!

HLSS Talk: 01.02.12

As part of the roll out of DIVERSE, myself and Max liaise with departments which have volunteered to use DIVERSE (HLSS and B&L). This role includes giving support and helping establish DIVERSE in modules through the use of workshops and talks etc. Today myself and Max gave a talk to a group of students studying a module in HLSS.

This talk gave us an opportunity to introduce the DIVERSE project to students and also allowed us to provide a demonstration on how to use the tool. Hopefully this talk has raised awareness amongst students, and will further help student engagment with the DIVERSE tool.

Until next time.
