JISC's Green Issue

This contains an interesting article about the student experience:
"Through research, pilot schemes and a soon-to-report Committee of Inquiry, JISC aims to raise awareness of the core issues that can inform a student’s experience of ICT in FE or HE, whilst offering practical, technical and advisory help to institutions"

and provides a link to The Committee of Inquiry into the Changing Learner Experience which I'd not heard of, but which sounds very useful:

"Our remit - UK wide - is to consider the impact of the newest technologies such as social networking and mobile devices on the behaviour and attitudes of students coming up to and just entered higher education and the issues this poses for universities and colleges.
Our aim is to bring focus and coherence to an area where there has been a great deal of dispersed activity to date and to do so in a way that brings it to the attention of a wider audience - one that includes those directing policy and strategy both inside and outside of universities and colleges. We are looking to draw the big picture and to interpret it clearly and concisely. "

I gave evidence to the 'Committee' (along with Charles Leadbeater).
