Work Smarter Together 2014
Latest update: Thanks to everyone who attended the event and to those of you who gave us feedback. This will help us shape the programme for future events.
Work Smarter Together is a one day university-wide event for UCD staff. The purpose is to create an environment within which to learn from each other and industry leaders, collaborate with colleagues and strengthen the relationship between the academic, administrative and research community. It is an opportunity to consider new approaches to the changing landscape of higher education, social media and the huge amount of University data being generated.
The forum is being hosted by three support units within the University – the Library, IT Services and Registry.
The event will take place on Thursday, 13 March 2014 from 10am – 4pm in the UCD O’Brien Centre for Science (Science East). All UCD staff are welcome but please note that places will be limited.
We are delighted to announce that the President of UCD, Professor Andrew Deeks will open this event, followed by keynote speaker Lord David Puttnam (Digital Champion for Ireland).
We are putting the final touches to what promises to be a thought-provoking and practical programme and we have a range of stimulating speakers lined up.
