In its 25 years of existence IWMW, the annual Institutional Web Management Workshop event, has fostered a thriving community and enabled people managing institutional web services to enhance their skills, share best practices and develop their professional networks.
From 1997 until 2013 the IWMW event was provided by UKOLN and supported by JISC. Following the cessation of JISC’s core funding for UKOLN the IWMW 2014 event was provided by Cetis and Jisc Netskills in conjunction with Brian Kelly, who founded the event. Since then IWMW event have been organised by Brian Kelly (UK Web Focus) and the host university, supported by an advisory group.
Archive of IWMW Event Websites
We have recreated significant parts of the original IWMW 1997-2013 event websites to this domain (the IWMW 2014-2019 events websites were hosted on this website). This archive include details of all sessions (plenary talks, workshops, masterclasses, debates, etc) held since the event was launched in 1997 and biographical details of the speakers and facilitators.
The archive is intended to ensure that we have a record related to the professional development of the web management community in the UK’s higher education community.
The entry point for each of the event websites contains three columns, typically with details of (a) how the event was announced; (b) links to the content provided at the event and (c) a summary of the event.
