This week marks the first anniversary of Sydney Educational Technology Group. Can't believe it's already been a year since it all began. We have come a long way since the early days when it was just 4-5 members sitting around a pub table discussing the latest and greatest tech in education.
For the upcoming meetup we have 2 excellent guest speakers lined up.
1) The first talk is by Alan Duncan. Alan is the Director of Data Governance at UNSW. He will be talking about "The Future of Information Management & Data Governance in Education," covering:
* What do we mean by…?
* Drivers for improved Information Management & Data Governance
* Tips from the rich and famous!
* Six "must do" components for your Information Strategy
2) The second talk is by Pradeep Khanna. As Executive Director of ‘Integrating Australia with Asia’, Pradeep positions Australia strategically in Asian Services Marketplace. Pradeep will be talking about the Future of Higher Education & Skills Training in the Australasian Region - Massive open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Digitisation.
Both talks are not to be missed so make sure you mark your calendars and RSVP ASAP. We will also have 2 minute shoutouts after the talks for anyone wanting to announce any events, product launches or quick demos. Like always, there will be free beer courtsey of our sponsors Anchor Web hosting and there will be enough opportunities for everyone to interact and network both before and after the event.
I hope that all of you will enjoy a well deserved Easter break and come back refreshed for the meetup on tuesday evening at 6 PM.
