The Jisc Podcast

Throughout the summer at Jisc we’ve been conducting interviews with various projects that are part of the research data spring, to find out more about their work, their backgrounds, and how they’ve found the process. 

In this series of interviews, we take the time to dig a little deeper into the thinking behind these projects, and get to know a little more about the work, and the people, behind them. 

Simon Coles, associate professor at the University of Southampton, is helping to develop a project called CREAM (collaboration for research enhancement by active metadata). It looks at changing and improving the way researchers use metadata, which is data that summarises basic information about data. It can make finding and working with data easier for researchers.

8 - 10 September 2015 marks the return of the annual Association of Learning Technology conference (ALT-C), which brings together practitioners, researchers and policy makers from across the sector to share their research and experience. 

 

Sarah Knight, senior co-design manager at Jisc, introduces us to her session at ALT-C which looked at how universities and colleges are working in partnership with their students.
