Summary of results Whats next for the SITS Trainers Network Questions and Discussion 2013 About the SITS Trainers Network First session facilitated by Richard Clark (UOL) & Aditya Vadali (Univ. Surrey). John Davis (Univ. Wolverhampton) co-ordinating since 2012 with Richard Clark.

To identify issues and challenges surrounding the delivery of SITS training. To share good practice and to see what everyone else is doing. To explore possibilities for collaboration and working together. 2011 Survey (Univ. Surrey) showed that 23 institutions supported the idea for a SITS training SIG/WG. A network was setup as the format of the group. 2013

Events During 2012 First event was held on 29/02/2012 (at the University of Oxford). 35 delegates attended the first meeting.

Consisted of short presentations and facilitated discussions about training issues faced by many institutions. Second event at SITS User Conference (July 2012). University of London showcase (SITS Training) + STN discussion

2013 Outcomes (2012) Open to the idea of sharing materials and approaches to training (where possible). Offer re-purposed training materials (Introduction to SITS:Vision client server). Share/compare approaches to training. This will help to create a network of SITS trainers who can collaborate & share

good practise and meet during conferences etc. Share good practise/ideas/materials etc via MySITS forum or via SITS Trainers Network meetings. 2013 Events During 2013 Third event at University of Wolverhampton (24/05/2013). 19 delegates attended.

Consisted of two showcase presentations (Trinity College Dublin/St. Andrews), two breakout sessions and a short facilitated discussion. Downloads: http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk/sits 2013 Outcomes: STN event May 2013

Many comments from STN members that it was a very worthwhile event. Longer breakout sessions would be needed in the future.

Nearly all Institutions offer some sort of basic introduction to SITS. Skills analysis of members of STN. Visit other Institutions to attend relevant training courses.

Length of the day was good (perhaps a 2 day event in the future). Many common themes in terms of issues faced by training community. Presentations/discussions offer further opportunities to debate issues.

At future events, member Institutions to showcase e-Learning approaches. 2013 SITS Trainers Member Profile Survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/sitstrainersprofile 28 Responses so far
