Institutional Web Management Workshops


Institutional Web Management Workshops (IWMW) are a series of workshop events organised by UKOLN to provide professional development for web managers, policy makers, developers, designers and information professionals related to the UK's higher and further education communities.

The workshops aim to provide an opportunity for discussion and debate amongst the participants. A small number of plenary talks address key areas of interest. However the main focus of the workshop centres around the parallel sessions, discussion groups and debates which enable participants to be actively engaged with the issues facing those involved in the provision of institutional Web management services.

The workshop series began with a two day event held at King's College London on 16-17 July 1997. Following the success of the initial event, in 1998 the event was extended to a three day format.

The event also provides a good opportunity to try out new technologies. A wireless network has been provided at the event since 2005, numerous communications facilities are employed and a wide range of social networking tools have also been used by delegates.
