We're at BETT 2015 this week chairing the Technology in Higher Education Summit - a space for higher education professionals to share ideas, future-gaze and streamline technology decision-making. 

We're going to be reporting from BETT for the duration of the exhibition, and today, Jisc's Lawrie Phipps chaired a day of sessions on the topic of 'Enhancing the learning of students'. Here he discusses the findings that emerged including attitudes towards social media in higher education and the next generation of student expectations.

Tomorrow we'll be hearing from Sarah Davies after her day of chairing sessions and presentations on the topic of developing pedagogy.
