Love an event that kicks off with Monty Python, provides free cake and has sufficient draw to pull 50 delegates indoors on a sunny Saturday afternoon! :o)
What is Purpos/ed?
Purpos/ed is a non-partisan platform for discussion and debate about the purpose(s) of education.
Purpos/ed kick started a debate in February 2011 that started with campaigns including encouraging people to contribute 500 words(February/March 2011) on their own blogs and these make excellent reading. People were then further encouraged to use quotes from the 500 word contributions 3×5 Flickr quotation mashups(April 2011).
The event of 30 April 2011 brought together people from across the country to discuss, debate and present their views on the purpose of education and ideas for moving the debate forwards and outwards. There was a strong feeling amongst some that this had to be beyond the boundaries of formal education.
So what next?
Well that is really over to all you people out there. This debate is open to all and has a serious need to hear more voices from all backgrounds.
What do YOU think the purpose of education is?

Good leadership key to technology success in universities
Technology has to help institutions to reengineer themselves for the next ten to fifteen years. Organisations like JISC need to facilitate this change and increase the level of technological understanding, especially at strategic and senior levels.
