I began writing this blog at the beginning of 2009. At the time I was working in the libraries at the University of Oxford. I started off writing about my observations of libraries, higher education, and technology.
Throughout the seven years I wrote for this blog there have been many shifts in its focus, as my circumstances and career has changed. One thing has remained the same – the focus on digital media and its impact on our working lives.
In mid-2016 I stopped writing this blog. What remains is an archive of my thoughts and development on digital matters in the context of libraries and higher education.
Where the blog’s title comes from
“Those who are comfortable using a range of digital media and are open to the changes that digitisation brings to society.”
– Martin Weller
By this definition I am a digitalist. Are you?
Through all my roles in UK universities I have been aware of the need to be open to the changes and challenges that digitisation is bringing to education. Thankfully it’s something that I am interested in and you might say passionate about. Keeping up to date with the changes comes easily to me and I share what I’m learning through this blog.
