Google Event on the 18th June - Another Speaker Confirmed

Our Google Event on Monday 18th June has another confirmed speaker, Dr Sam Clarke is a Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering in the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering.

'Using Google Apps to Organise a Department'

In the Civil & Structural Engineering department we have been using the suite of Google Apps to try to move away from reliance on email and static printed documents as the main means of communication. The move has seen us try to rethink the way our systems have worked in the past, trying to see how Google can save us time and effort, from embracing Google docs to coordinate student meetings to replacing our previously paper based staff handbook with a Google Site. Our staff handbook has allowed us to create a dynamic source of information which at its base level is a repository, but has the ability to be so much more through the integration with the full suite of Google Apps.

The focus of this session will be to look at the root cause of the changes that were made, how we looked to address them and some of the issues we encountered on the way.

Full details of all speakers confirmed so far are available on the event web page below, from which you can also reserve your place.
