IT Services is delighted to launch the OxTALENT Competition 2014, celebrating and rewarding the innovative use of technology in teaching, learning, research, and outreach at Oxford. Once again, we have an array of categories for both staff and students to enter, whether you have developed a new tool, used existing technology in an exciting way, or designed an eye-catching conference poster or infographic.
We have additional categories for innovations that we have discovered during the year or that have been brought to our attention. So, if you haven’t designed or developed a technology yourself but you know someone who has, please tell us!
This year, we have made the OxTALENT blog the one-stop shop for everything you need to know about the competition. You can find instructions on how to enter and details of past winners to give you inspiration, and you can follow this blog to keep up to date with developments as they unfold.
And don’t forget two very important dates:
- Friday 16th May – entries close
- Wednesday 18th June – the OxTALENT 2014 Red Carpet awards ceremony
Each year we give the OxTALENT awards to staff and students who have been innovative and talented in their use of technology to enhance teaching and learning.
Feedback from the event includes:
‘what rays of sunshine the Oxtalent awards are’; ‘last night at the (wonderful) OxTalent Awards’;‘ you have made me feel good about IT’; ‘It is always an impressive event and I know that comes with effort’; ‘The whole event was really well organised and it was great seeing the range of projects that were up for awards’, “OxTalent2013 was wonderful. Good speakers, warmly presented, innovative and inspiring projects and some yummy hors d’œuvre”; “Lots of thanks to @ltgoxford, and the canapé lady for a fun evening at #oxtalent2013.”
See you, same time, same place, next year.
