We’re about to formally launch LNCD, the new University-wide technology for education group convened by Joss Winn from the Centre for Educational Research & Development, and including people from CERD, ICT Services, and the Library. LNCD’s website is now live, at lncd.lincoln.ac.uk (and also at lncd.org). LNCD is Not a Central Development group.

A couple of people from the Library are already involved in LNCD, but anyone with an interest in the use of technology in higher education is welcome to join using this form.

“LNCD offers incentives to people who wish to contribute to the rapid innovation of appropriate technology for education at the university, through work-experience, research bursaries and assistance with internal and external applications for funding. We also provide advice and support for the use of technology in research, teaching and learning…
