|From the LILAC 2013 programme|
Fede and I met up a few times prior to the conference to develop the slides and decide what to prioritise. We'd submitted a short paper so we couldn't cover everything. The project manager, Fiona O'Brien, sat in on our final run through (which had some technical glitches!) and made some helpful suggestions. However, part of what we wanted to talk didn't happen until the Thursday before. This was our "Get the digital edge" day, which was one of the key outputs of the project. Some short interviews had been filmed to ask students what they'd gained from the day. Fede and I went though these the night before our presentation to pick out a few to show.
Presenting at a conference for the first time was a bit daunting so I'm glad that it was LILAC and that Fede was with me - both of those really helped. I always get nervous when speaking in public, as I'm sure many people do, but nowadays I also get a buzz out of it. The time flew by and I realised afterwards there were a few things I'd forgotten to mention. We were asked some good questions and I hope everyone who attended got something from it.
Our presentation and some photos from the session (thanks to our Chair Steve McIndoe) are below.
