Student engagement - Hello everyone I'm Jo (twitter @jobadge) and I will be presenting the short paper 18 in this session: 'Mobile microblogging and the student experience: a study in 140 characters (or less)'. Presentation is available on slideshare and attached. My colleagues (Alan Cann @ajcann Alex Moseley @alexm11 and Sturat Johnson @stujohnson) will be in the audience to lend a hand :-) This project was funded by JISC TechDis through the HEAT3 scheme. Any comments in advance welcome, otherwise I'll look forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Jo

Sarah Horrigan:

Meeting by accident seems to have worked a treat! :o)

Good to see you today!

Martin Oliver:

Hi - would be good to meet up; I'm going to be around from Tues noon 'til Thurs noon, and will be serving stints on the Academy stall. If I'm not there when you drop by, the people who are should be able to tell you when I'll next be about.

Richard Hall:

You have to treat these things like music festivals and make sure that: 1. you choose things that are unknown to you, but sound cool; 2. you see a few things on the "rising" stage; and 3. you drink enough.

Looking forward to seeing you!
