We are pleased to announce the second ESTICT event to be held in Edinburgh on Thursday 29th April 2010. The venue for the event is the centrally-located eScience Institute (NESC) at the University of Edinburgh.
Professor Jim Boyle from the University of Strathclyde is presenting a keynote with the intriguing title ‘Truth, Lies and Voting Systems’ and we have invited a number of speakers to talk on a wide variety of topics relating to Electronic Voting Systems and their innovative use. A voting question design workshop will investigate writing EVS questions for different pedagogic purposes.
The agenda for the event
- Nick Bowskill (Glasgow) – ‘Shared Thinking as Group-Oriented Generative Learning’
- Martin Hawksey (JISC RSC Scotland NE) – ‘TWEVS – Twitter EVS’
- Carol Withey (Greenwich) – ‘PollEverywhere‘ (Voting by texting SMS)
- Marina Sawdon (Durham) – ‘Promoting long-term knowledge retention by use of Keepad Audience response system’
