JISC infoNet are currently looking for up to ten institutions from across both the further and higher education sectors who are willing to review the draft content of their forthcoming ‘Strategy infoKit’
Do you have experience of strategic planning issues? Are you interested in how institutions make progress towards their strategic goals? Would you be willing to review and comment on a new draft resource supporting this area? If so, you sound like just the kind of person they are looking for!
Those selected will be given access to the draft content via a private URL, asked to consider the appropriateness of the content, format, structure, ease of navigation and overall usefulness of the resource from their perspective and to provide structured feedback and suggestions by completing an extensive evaluation form. All comments and suggestions made will then be considered before the production of the final version due for launch in November 2009.
Access to the draft version will be available from May 2009 and the evaluation template must be completed and returned to JISC infoNet by the end of August 2009. A grant of £5,000 will be paid to each institution selected to take part upon receipt of their completed evaluation form.
Anyone interested in participating should send an email to Steve Bailey (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than Friday 10th April 2009 providing a summary of their current role and outlining their experience in the areas of strategic planning within the further or higher education sectors. It should also include confirmation that they are authorised to undertake this work by their appropriate line management and a commitment to completing the process by 31st August 2009. Those institutions selected will be informed by Friday 1st May and will receive further instructions, the evaluation form and a link to the draft content by no later than Friday 29th May.
